Society Fair Market in Alexandria - Report

Steve | Jan 7, 201507:40 PM     12

My first time in this market/counter/cafe on Washington St. below King in Old Town Alexandria from the same restaurant group as Restaurant Eve. It's a pretty place with plenty to explore.

I can't remember the last time i enjoyed a bread as wonderful as their potato rosemary. It looks like a crusty French boule, but it has a light exterior and a fluffy crumb with a hint of rosemary. The outside was dark, though, particularly on the bottom. Delicious crust. It made for an easy eating sandwich with ham we cooked at home. It also did great toasted with Society Fair's chicken liver mousse. The mousse was great, and a decent value at $6 for a jar.

The pat├ęs look good too, so those will be my next purchase.
