Farmers' Market & Good Eats.

Now that Mother Nature is playing nice, being outdoors is a must. I do have to pop some allergy medicine to ensure that I am not ripping my nose or eyes out, but once that is controlled my eyes and nose are safe.

Last Saturday, Cinthia and I headed to the Farmers' Market. It was their first day back this year so of course we did not want to miss out on all the fun. We made a mistake in going a little later than we should because people take their Farmers' Markets seriously.

Duly noted. Mistake never to be made again.

Regardless, we had the best time and I foresee a lot of visits to the Farmers' Market on Saturday mornings. I love that you can shop or simply come to enjoy the live music, sit on a blanket on the grass and munch on delicious pastries from one of the vendors.

Free wine samples.
Count me in.
I got the potato rosemary bread and it took everything in me not to eat it all in one sitting.
Bread lover problems or like people love to say #firstworldproblems
Biggest mushrooms we ever did see!
After the market, we walked around in search of a restaurant with outdoor seating to continue to enjoy the beautiful day.

We were pretty excited when Third & Ferry had available seating outdoor.
Let's just say we hit the jackpot with this restaurant.

The food is unbelievably good and I'm so happy I have a friend who loves seafood as much as I do because poor Sean would be gagging the entire time.

Now he doesn't and we can stay happily married ;).

Give me all the lobster flatbread.
Cerviche with plantain chips - I could eat this all day.
And the winner of all fries, I mean the best fries I've ever had in my entire life go to this crab topped fries.
So amazing I can't even give it enough praise.
Delicious fish taco.
We had to share the dessert because as much as I would have loved to say, "I'm stuffed" when there's Mississippi Pie on the menu you get Mississippi Pie.

And it was worth every.single.bite. So airy and light and just so crazy good.
I hope that you've all had dinner.
Happy Hump Day!

Your city is so picturesque. And oh my goodness. Everything looks so delicious. The thought that those fries exist and I haven't had them makes me super jealous! I'm glad Yall have Spring finally. Meanwhile down here it's about to be blazing so my spring will start feeling real summery sooner than later!!!
