Trip Report 47 Years Old and I Just Had my First Pastrami! A Mini Trip Report.

Jump to last reply

I travelled in to Chicago this weekend from the 'burbs to check out the French Market and visit with a friend. You can get 1-hour parking validated next door with $20 in purchases. www.frenchmarketchicago.com

I love Farmers' Markets, so I was interested in checking this out. I've never been to Chelsea Market in NY, but the French Market is how I picture Chelsea Market, on a much smaller scale. I was actually surprised by how uncrowded it was; there were maybe 20-30 shoppers wandering around.

On a whim, I decided to try a pastrami sandwich for lunch. I decided it was a shame I had made it to 47 without ever trying it! The vendor gave me a sample, telling me it was unlike any pastrami I would find anywhere else. (Not having had any elsewhere, I took his word for it.) It was very good - it melted in my mouth, and I happily ordered a sandwich.

I also bought 7 potstickers for just $2.99, a chocolate croissant, and some gelato, as well as some strawberries that we're still enjoying.

The French Market is worth a visit, but next week I'm going to the the Dane County Farmers' Market in my hometown of Madison, WI. Now THAT is a farmers' market!
