On the second day of our trip to Baltimore, and our first full day together, we got up at a reasonable time and headed out to the farmers market in search of coffee and treats.
The 32nd Street Farmers Market is located in the neighbourhood of Waverly, which is just a short hop, skip, and a jump away from Charles Village.Upon entering the market, our coffee senses began tingling and it did not take us long to locate the black gold being served up at Zeke’s Coffee, a local, small batch, family-owned roastery that is “seriously committed to freshness.” And after my first sip of their medium roast coffee… I believe it!Founded in 1980, the market is a non-profit organization that offers all kinds of products from pastries and baked goods, to produce and flowers, to name a few. Walking around the market was nice and there was so much to look at.All you need is love!
And a lovely farmers market.My favourite part was seeing all the brightly coloured flowers some of the vendors were selling. If we were staying in Baltimore long enough, I would have bought some for our room!After a bit of a walkabout with coffees in hand, we sought out some tasty pastries from Chez G – there were so many options to choose from, but we decided on these Morning Buns. They’re made with a combination of croissant and Danish dough – which makes them both flakey and buttery – raisins and a dusting of confectioners’ sugar.
And an excellent choice it was; they were beyond delicious. We sat down at the edge of the parking lot with some other people and enjoyed the warm sunshine while we ate our treats and sipped on our coffees. I am so happy it’s Spring!Once we finished eating, we decided to head off on the next part of our adventure.If you’re ever in Baltimore, the 32nd Street Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon, all year ’round – you don’t want to miss it!
