Claude Moore Colonial Farm Market Fair

If you like sausage and haven't gone to a Market Fair, you are missing out. I know they serve other food there (, but to be honest, I love the sausage so much that I ignore every thing else. You can give them your email and print out a coupon for 1/2 off admission (regularly $5). There are arts and crafts and things, but the standout is, for me, the sausage. They have a big wood fire with a spit over it upon which they roast chickens, and right atop the wood coals (if that's not a misnomer) is a huge cast iron pan full of sausage. You can see all the sausage grease in there, and the chicken drippings fall right into the pan. Oh man, is it good. You can buy a sausage for $1 (they are kind of half-size sausages so plan on getting more than 1), put it in some bread and get cheese, for a total of $2 including everything. (I think those prices are correct.) They have mustard which goes deliciously. They also have asparagus, rock candy, chess pie, and other food, as well as lemonade and hard cider in flavors other than apple (pear, I think, was the last one I remember).

I can't believe I haven't posted about this before.

They have these market fairs seasonally. They have entertainment as well, but like I said, I make a beeline for the sausage. It's both days this weekend, and I'm so excited.
