Last weekend Meredith and I went to Dallas to see one of our sisters. While we were there, we did all of our usual favorite weekend activities like making guacamole, getting manicures and pedicures and going to a local market. The Dallas farmers market that we went to was probably one of many in the area, but it was by far the greatest type of market for our needs.
While we had already made a few espressos and cappuccinos back at the house, we figured we needed an extra jolt before hitting the shops.
We stumbled upon Palmieri, an Italian cafe stand that specializes in slow drip coffee. While I don’t necessarily like waiting for anything related to caffeine, it was definitely worth the wait.
Not far behind my love of coffee is my love for French pastries and treats. The market had everything from fresh fish to authentic elote, but I stuck to my guns and got an assortment of desserts to go with my Guatemalan coffee.
**Breakfast of champions.
Okay, I don’t always look for a tractor when I’m visiting a farmers market, but when there’s one around you can bet I’m down for a photo op!
The weekend continued to be a success as I got a photo with one of my favorite ladies, Marilyn! We’re on a first name basis. 🙂
And I even found some TCD blue to take a photo with downtown! Dallas understands me.
All in all, it was a great weekend spent with loving sisters and bad jokes. It’s more about being with people you love than anything else, but if you can do it in a cool city it’s even better! I’ll definitely be heading back to the Dallas farmers market again because there’s bound to be a photo op with my name on it.
