Took a ride up to Appleton today to walk around it’s downtown farmer’s market. I do love the Appleton market. I need to stock up on my favorite sauce ever from Jimmy J and hit my favorite bakery Renards Bake Shop. I picked up a few awesome things along the way.
- Heirloom cherry tomatoes
- Jimmy J’s Hot Rib Sauce
- Ciabatta loaf from Renards
- Cinnamon/Raisin Oatlmean from Great Harvest Bread Co. out of Neenah, WI
- Sweet Potato-Sage Pasta from Dalla Terra out of Appleton, WI
- Michigan blueberries
- Michigan peaches
While I’m in Appleton I like to hit all my favorite stores. One of those stores being World Market. I love everything about this store. It was at World Market where I discovered my all time favorite summer drink combination:
Sangria and sparkling Meyer lemon juice. LOVE IT! If there is a World Market in your area, I implore you to try this over ice. You will quickly become a believer.
I have some pork steaks on the grill all sorts of slathered in Jimmy J’s sauce with some fresh sweet corn with garlic/basil butter to be enjoyed on my deck with a tall glass of my sangria mix. The perfect summer dinner in my world.
