After almost a year I ventured into the Haymarket this weekend. I cook at home more often than dining out and was impressed by the produce and the cheap prices. I recommend that everyone check the gills on fish carefully before buying - I bought some decent snapper.
I have two questions. How do they manage to sell at such low prices? Are the vendors licensed and pay for a permit? I'm particularly curious in regards to fish vendors - the fish was not bad but one mistake can really ruin a day.
Did I miss meat vendors. I stopped into a few butcher shops in the basement - most were featuring goat, organs and lamb. I was looking for some non-halal meat such as cuts of pork and sausages. I recently visited the Westside Market in Cleveland and really loved the sausages and meats on sale.
All in all, not a bad experience. Does anyone know if driving and parking is really possible. The T took me almost 45mins each way from the West burbs.
