Get ready for some major picturage.
First of all, let me just say that I love Chagrin Falls. It's such a gorge place, even without the farmers market. Note to self: convince lame friends to spend a day there some time in the near future. If they refuse: find new friends.
There were a bunch of cute little stands, and a few things I wasn't expecting - like this booth selling goat cheese! They had some divine flavors like Cocoa Caprine, Lemon Scone, Herbs de Provence and Black Truffle.
I ended up rolling with the Cranberry Cinnamon Walnut.
Bomb. There was also a stand selling homemade pasta!! I may or may not have let out a little squeal of delight, but I swear, it wasn't really my fault. It's an uncontrollable thing, so please try to understand.
Papardelle is like my all time FAVORITE and it's so hard to find, it's just infuriating. My heart went all aflutter when I saw it amongst the pastas!
Get in my bag.
I also found a cute hippy guy selling hand packeted tea!
It was a tough choice between Green Pomegranate and Red Buzz-Berry, but in the end - Buzz-Berry won me over with all its extra fruitiness.
Ahhh the happiness. And what would shopping be without a little mood music I ask you?
Not nearly as much fun, that's for certain. After carefully stowing away my precious packages (and kissing them goodbye), my aunt wanted to go check out The Popcorn Shop which is this cute little store right on the falls that sells popcorn, nostalgia candy and ice cream.
It's pretty sweet, I gotta admit it.
I was tempted to get some Chocolate Blackout (for the listed medical benefits of course), but opted for some of these instead:
Someone get me a gold star!! I snacked happily on these yummy treats while my aunt went balls to wall. Just as we were about to leave and head to Mustard Seed Market (swoon), my aunt saw one of her favorite places:
Yep. Starbucks. No lie, they've taken over the world. I'm pretty sure that I could be walking down a barren street in Zimbabwe and pass by at least two.
A tall soy chia latte was had by yours truly and we finally continued on to our final destination: Mustard Seed Market!
If you live in the North East Ohio area and have not been to Mustard Seed Market, please stop reading this, get into your car and drive straight there. Don't stop at any red lights. Don't slow down for passersby. Trust me, they'll forgive you and it will be well worth the incarceration period you might receive. Seriously, this place is like a health nut's utopia!!
I got my first green juice here too!
The Grasshopper. This bad boy was packed with a shot of wheatgrass, pear, pineapple juice and mint. It was so good!! It's actually made me want to get a juicer! Any suggestions guys?
I also grabbed a yummy tofu pocket for lunch.
Marinated tofu stuffed with mushrooms, onions, spinach and more tofu! I was speechless. I really need to try to recreate this beauty, but to be honest - I suck at cooking with tofu. Practice makes perfect though, right?
And while I'm asking questions, could you end a perfect shopping trip any better than with a perfect vegan carrot cookie?
My taste buds will undoubtedly refuse anything I try to feed them for the rest of the week. My food is mediocre at best compared to the deliciousness of Mustard Seed Market. So sad.
Well lovies, I still have to run, make dinner and force myself to clean my room! Send me encouraging thoughts... and check out my guest post at Eater Not A Runner if you get hungry later (;
