Northern Virginia Christmas Market November 12, 2007Posted by smooregasbord in Around Town, Food.
On Saturday, Casey and I traveled to the Dulles Expo Center for the Northern Virginia Christmas Market. We went last year and found a lot of unique gifts for those “hard to buy for” individuals on our list. We were excited to go again this year! We spent almost three hours perusing the aisles and aisles of homemade crafts. There weren’t as many unique items as we’ve seen in the past, but it was still a lot of fun. There were, however, A LOT more food vendors.
We were excited to see Olde Tradition Spice again this year. Their mulling spices are delicious and they come in individual tea bag servings. The taste and smell is 100% pure Christmas!!
Red Rocker Candy had a booth to display their unique take on brittle and toffee. We’re big fans of their pistachio brittle and pecan brittle!
La Provencale Cellars was there featuring their Sparkling Apple Cider and Apple Pie in a Jar spread. WOW! If fall was a flavor, then I think they’ve nailed it!! They also carry Pumpkin Pie in a Jar and an Apple Grilling Glaze.
Casey and I love soup during the colder months. We came across Old Plantation Soup‘s booth and tried their Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup and River Road Gumbo which were delicious. They also sell dip mixes. We finally decided upon the Blazin’ Saddles and Smokin’ Chipotle. We were given a sample of their Southern Pecan Pie Muffin Mix which was very good. They used it to make mini muffins which would be great gifts during the upcoming holiday months.
