Foodie Tots Around Town: H & M Opens, Farm-to-Street Party

July 29th, 2013 · 12 Comments

It was a busy weekend in Washington! We had a great time catching up with our favorite local food champions at the EatLocalFirst2013 Farm-to-Street Party…..


…. especially FRESHFARM Markets, Washington’s Green Grocer, Gordy’s Pickle Jar (their Sweet Chips are the foodie tot’s favorite!), Route 11, and My Organic Market (MOMs) and Arcadia’s Mobile Market. The mushroom and squash tacos from Chaya DC were awesome, as was the popcorn macaron and caramel ice cream sandwich from Milk Cult. I couldn’t pass up the floral Cherry Blossom kombucha from Capital Kombucha and the Cherry Root flavor from Barefoot Kombucha (tastes like cherry soda!)….

Any street party where the samples include kale salad and vendors give away free local peaches is a favorite of ours.

And we went back-to-school shopping at the newly-opened H & M in Old Town, Alexandria. The new store features a large children’s section, and they rolled out the red carpet for local foodie tots this weekend.


The kids were greeted with black-tie clad waiters proffering chocolate chip cookies, entertained with a tattoo artist and balloon creations, and catered to with pb&j, macaroni and cheese bites, and my favorite, skewered watermelon cubes.


All while I picked up some back-to-school bargains in (relative) peace. Two thumbs up from the foodie tot crew!

Hope you’re having a fun and delicious summer. We have a great giveaway coming up tomorrow, so stay tuned!
