Basil took Friday off, so we all decided to to visit the public markets in downtown Milwaukee. We all loaded up in Basil’s truck and away we went. It didn’t take long to get there and I can’t remember the names of either of the markets we went to, but here we are entering the first of the two we visited.
Wow, what a neat place! There was every kind of grocery item or prepared food that you could wish for:
The above is the selection of Gelato…(Italian Ice Cream)..they had sooooo many to choose from. Eula sampled the Tiramisu flavor and decided she needed a couple of scoops. I think I sampled the orange flavor and it was so good!
And bread, of course. These loaves were humongous!
I had bought a coffee, so when I was taking the bread picture, I was steadying the camera with the palm of the hand that I was holding coffee with and poured it all down the front of me….grrrrrr! DeWayne is always saying he can’t take me anywhere…..
So, wearing my coffee, I moved on to the seafood section.
And the salad section.
And then I spotted this that I found interesting. I’d never seen anything like this…it’s apparently some kind of beer:
And across the isle were the “Cokes” in the glass bottles that I haven’t seen in years.
We left and went a few blocks to another public market and I snapped as many pictures of downtown Milwaukee as I could get.
We made it to the other market where the parking was under a busy highway.
*Notice the incredibly good lookin guy in the blue shirt…..hubba hubba!
It was lunch time, so the market was pretty busy. Most were there to buy their lunch which could have been just about anything! Here are some pictures from the upper level looking down.
We browsed their huge cheese section and sampled cheese curds of different flavors. Of course, we all had to buy some! DeWayne and I each bought cheddar curds but he got the cajun flavor while I got the jalapeno flavor. Yummy!
They also sold award winning cheeses, but at an award winning price! I had to get a picture of some of the prices!
In case you can’t see them, the prices left to right are $24.99, $32.99, $24.99, $30.99!!!!! Uh, we didn’t buy any of these.
Armed with our new purchases, we left and made our way back “home” and we passed close enough to Lake Michigan for me to catch a picture. I think that’s a ferry in the distance.
There are so many beautiful homes in that area and we took a different route back home, so I took a sample of what we saw along the way.
And I had to get a shot of the clouds! I can’t pass that up, ya know!
And then we were back to “home sweet home” and all ready for a cup of coffee or a cold one.
Ahhhhh…..time to put the feet up! And for me to change out of my "coffee t-shirt" into something else that I could later spill pizza sauce on.....
I've decided to buy stock in "Spray N Wash"
