Scordia Market

On Friday, a friend of mine invited me and Amelia to go to the market with her. She's a seasoned marketer, complete with the wheely bag, so I knew she'd be a great tour guide! We hit the clothes first. It's funny the things you can get at an Italian market. Witness 'Sexy Diana' undies!

Nothin' sexy about these, is there?

There was a pottery guy there, and I could have bought a bunch from him, but ended up with some gelato mugs and a cute peacock casserole dish.

I also got this cute, summery table cloth. I think it'll look good out on the table on our patio.

After cruising around in the clothes and other random stuff section, we made our way over to the food, where I bought what I can only describe as the best tasting tomatoes I've ever had. They are SO good.

There was a guy there selling rotisserie chickens, and both Amy and I bought one, but when we got back to her house, we realized that we paid for two and only got one! :( Bummer. I was planning on surprising Token for dinner that night. Oh well. His consolation prize was some Italian bar food.

Here are some scenes from the market.

My girl's a shopper!

You sure do have a beautiful little shopper girl! All of the cheese and other foods look so delicious, well maybe not the scrawny chickens.

Of course Amelia is a shopper. Like mother, like daughter! LOVE the pictures. I feel like I was shopping with you. I wish I was. I'd love that peacock casserole and tablecloth. Feel free to pick them up for me next time! :-)

What a sweetheart! I love the picture of Amelia and can't wait to see her in person! Love the tablecloth too! Looks like fun going to the market, but I'd have to take Amelia out of the stroller and load it up with all the goods! She'd probably like being carried, but then I'd be tired. Looks like fun! Love, Anne G.

I'm not sure what kind of tomatoes those were. They were bigger than cherry ones, but smaller than plum. They were so good!!
