Make Time For This Market

Last weekend Ed and I picked up my mother and went to visit my nephew at college.  It's his first year and he was going to give us a tour of his dorm before we took him out to eat.  Because you know, college kids need food.  All the time.

I decided on Time Market, a place I've been wanting to try for a long time.  I rarely venture downtown or to the university area because I don't like to spend more than one minute looking for a parking spot.  But it was Sunday, so parking was a breeze.

The market offers produce (I think only organic), cheeses, wine, beverages, specialty foods, and more.  I bought hand-dipped dark chocolate covered figs - juicy, sweet Pajarero figs from Extremadura, Spain, that are dried and then hand-dipped in rich, 68% Caro dark chocolate, a chocolate made from a recipe handed down 3 generations. They are to die for.  
Once I read the menu, I knew we'd be eating there.  I didn't get a picture of our sandwiches, but we all made great choices.  My nephew had the Classic Reuben sandwich, Ed had a wood-fired pizza, my mother had the Roasted Red sandwich, and I....I had what I think was probably the best sandwich on the menu, the Roasted Chicken & Tamal - a house-made green corn tamal, sliced wood-fired chicken breast, cheddar cheese, avocado and salsa on pain levain, a rustic, classic sourdough bread. 

A tamal on a sandwich!  Genius.  And AMAAAAZING. 

I loved the atmosphere and I'll definitely be going back.  It's a beautiful store.
