I don’t know if you know, but Coldplay released their music video for their awesome song Hymn For The Weekend feat. Beyonce and it is amazing. I titled this blog after their song and also because I am going to tell you about a great weekend I had two weeks ago.
Two weekends ago, I drove me and a van load of my friends to the River Market to do a little shopping. For those of you who are new to the KC area or just do not know much about it ( I am one of those people. I don’t know much of anything.), the River Market is a part of the Downtown Kansas City area. On the weekends, there is a lot of local produce sold. It is not the best in the winter though, because it is not as big. Not as many people are there selling their goods. It was definitely still worth the trip though. We mainly bought fruits and vegetables.
Before we went to the market, we stopped by Quay Coffee for some caffeine goodness. From there we walked over to the market. Once there, we began to look for some good stuff because we wanted to come back and cook dinner with all the things we bought. I got some peppers, hummus, pomegranate tea, and some bubble tea! We also stopped by an Italian store to get some pastries. They were ‘fracking’ delicious. I also saw a man carrying a mesh sack with two LIVE CHICKENS! I panicked a little when I saw them….I have a strange fear of chickens. Don’t ask why. That’s a long story for another time. Maybe next week’s blog?
After we bought all of our goodies ( I hate that word and I have no idea why I used it. I am sorry.) We walked over to the the big Chinese market across the street. I LOVE Chinese markets. This one smelled like fish though. Like it smelt really bad! They had a big fish market in the back. They would chop it all up for you on the spot!
When we had our fill of culture and diversity for the day, I drove us back to cook our dinner! We had kale salad (did not like it. Kale is overrated), avocado spread for pita bread, hummus, and peppers. It was a pretty successful day, if I do say so myself!
Amanda served as our photographer for the day!
If you were wondering, I did make a typo! I meant to say “v artsy”. V means very. As if it was not short enough already.
But I suggest that everyone go check out the River Market sometime! Especially in the summer when it is a lot bigger and hoppin.
Until next time friends!
