Chicago Market - Mies Van Der Rohe Way

by sarahmfry, October 03, 2008
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.
