Chicago Market - Mies Van Der Rohe Way

There's just something about a downtown market. Like a little colorful oasis nestled below towering steel and glass.

What can I say? I'm a sucker for the sight of someone walking down the sidewalk nestling a brown bag stuffed high with bread and vegetables. It just seems somehow more exotic than my minivan-with-seventy-five-plastic-Walmart-sacks life.

Can't you just feel Autumn and the sights and sounds buzzing around this little spot?

It was a feast for the senses.






I wish now that I had bought these little mini-pumpkins-on-a-vine. I didn't want to carry them around the streets. But I think it would have been worth it. They were delightful.



This is the little park on the other side of MIes Van Der Rohe Way. It was a charming melting pot of nannys, executives, bums and sightseers.

I think I would've risked bringing the pumpkin-on-a-stick home (you'll have to ask Robert about the time I transported a garland of chile peppers home from Seattle--it was a nerve-wracking time for me!)
