Epicurean readers who also “Like” @Carolina Epicurean on Facebook know I’ve been in Austin, Tx for a few days, taking in the food scene.
One of my favorite places in Austin is Central Market. I love to wander and taste, looking for things I’ve never heard of or seen before while taking in the sheer food beauty as I go.
Even though it’s been in the mid to high 80′s, we thought we’d try some “seasonal” Pumpkin Pie Soda as we took in some pretty good people watching on the outdoor patio.
Bell, who I just met today, made a good point when she told me her theory on why so many people hang out @Central Market – a “grocery store”. She thinks because Austin doesn’t have a large outdoor gathering place downtown (like Asheville’s Pack Square Park), Central Market is the perfect place to go grab some great food, go out to the patio and visit with friends, let the kids run around and listen to live music.
