This past weekend my sister and I took a stroll down the Strip District.
My goal: to see the new Pgh Public Market. I had been waiting ALL summer for it to open!
My sisters goal: to eat.
The Strips Goal: to make me crazy.
Saturday’s are always crazy there. PNC Bank (I know I still need to change that!!!!!!) had an ATM down so of coarse me, my sister and a zillion other people needed cash. I got snaked into eating at Pamela’s Diner. It’s decent food and all I just didn’t want to sit down. When I go to the strip it’s one of the few times outside my weekly grocery shopping I get exercise. And I always want to try some of the sidewalk vendors foods but I am always with people who wanna sit.
I guess it was an hour or two after we arrived at the strip that I was able to start looking for the Market. I must admit from the pics I had an idea of where it was located, but I had no idea where it was located. We walked up onto the docks and all the way down before I was ready to give up hope. There weren’t many people going that direction that weren’t getting into cars so I really wasn’t too sure.
Inside proved to be a very nice set up. It was a preview weekend so not all vendors were there. I will admit I did not purchase anything that day. I just wanted to get a feel for what was there, how much things were, etc.
As you can see Fudgie Wudgie was there. I’m going to be completely honest and ask this question. Why?
They have a store one street over.
Also Four Paws Barkery which is an out door vendor on Saturdays in the strip is there. They sell natural, home made pet treats and other supplies.
I honestly don’t recall who this is. I do remember smelling some of the herbal tea’s. That might be what all of the where but I couldn’t tell among the many people in front of the table.
The following pic is from Mott Family Farm. They sell certified naturally grown products. All of the products looked great! I just wish I had my shopping list with me and knew what I needed for this week. I know better for next time.
This cake just looked so yummy! As much as I wanted to eat one I had to let it go and move on.
See the entire vendor list, description and days they will be at the public market.
Hope to see you there again this coming weekend!
Right now I miss work for a few reasons. #1 I miss the money cause unemployment isn’t covering it all. #2 I miss talking to people every day. That’s about it. If I could make a living staying home and blogging your damn right I would. But I sure don’t miss not being home when my kids got home.
Today I didn’t get to do as much spring cleaning done. Hubby hurt his back the other day and he was in alot of pain so we wound up at the hospital this morning. I was looking forward to getting more done before the girl scout camping trip this weekend. I am nice so I offered to go with him and he took me up on it.
I had never been to Mercy hospital before. Been to Upper St. Clair, South side, and Children’s all of which have plus’s and minuses though thank goodness we haven’t had a need to visit the new Children’s yet.
The waiting room has chairs that I’ve never seen in another hospital before. They were pretty comfy.
The ladies at the front desk were nice. They didn’t really look right at you, maybe to avoid conversation but still nice. We get back to the room only about 15-20 min after we arrived and they gave him the dreaded gown. I’m feeling embarrassed for him but apparently when your in alot of pain you really don’t care what you have to wear.
