    Oooh! I saw that rat when I was there in May! Due to my love of rats I was strangely drawn to it.

    How surprising that the dark Taza chocolate is dairy- and gluten-free. Nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnot.

    WE HAVE TROD UPON THE SAME GROUND. squealitysqueality. squeeeeeee. squee!

    SO lovely you to got to meet and chat! I am so jealous of all your adventures. Safe trip to Chicago- can’t wait to see what other shenanigans you get up to!

    Look after those feet … Travellers need good, sensible shoes!

    Oh, and I should say, not tomato allergic but tomato intolerant but boy, those are SOME tomatoes!

    And, loved the rat … Hmmm, or not, as the case may be.

    Aw, no photo of you two beauties together? How I would’ve loved to be there hanging out with both of you!

    I love New York – their farmers markets are to die for.

    Now re the shoes…I know this is going to sound daggy BUT I have a few nice pair of CROCS ballet flats that I take traveling. They are light weight & comfy (the soles are like pillows). I put a bit of baby powder in them to make sure they don’t rub and off you go. You can get ballet flats that are kinda holey…good for summer. Seriously…get some!

    Looks like such a vibrant market, oh those tomatoes. Looking forward to your next stop!

    Those tomatoes look great 🙂

    Enjoy the windy city

    Did they have kale chips? Not as funky as your homeland 😛 I’m so in market envy of you right now Angle Babe!

  12. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oh, your poor feet 🙁 As someone who has had surprising amounts of blood emerge from toes (always toes) at unexpected times, I feel your pain and hope it ends soon! I’m glad you had such great days in spite of the foot situation though – I suppose you’re a bit of an expert after your previous foot challenges :S – and am awestruck by all of the food. All of it.

    Yeeeeeeeee… I think you’d be a great travel partner for me because hitting the local markets is one of my fav things to do when I go around too… LOVE the fact that you’re still able to blog even though your life is so hectic so we can be updated (and stalking) you wherever you go kekeke…

    We have giant rats around here all the time. They’re just so common. As are blisters from new shoes and exploding drinks and jet-setting between large, well-known cities and lunching with famous, published bloggers. It’s all so routine.

    So glad it’s all working out so well for you. I’d love to be eating that punnet of raspberries. Haven’t bought any here for so long – am waiting for their season to start and the prices to fall xx

    I’m glad that you had fun with the Hannahs. I was surprised at you only spending 4 days in New York. Hmmm, I’m realising more and more that I have no idea what kombucha, I just had to google it. Can’t say I’ve ever had it. Is it available here? Things I find concerning from your post- the rat, obviously, and also that the raspberries have the same sticker as the berries we get here. That is particularly disturbing. Multinationalism anyone? And when that first photo flicked up I thought that sign said tripe and onions, and I was somewhat confused. I’d give the rawreos a crack though I reckon.

    Those are some funny-looking cucumbers!

    Heirloom tomatoes are the best! I can eat them on their own all day, every day! Yums!

  17. Catherine

    You are going to Chicago?! Wow girl! I am really enjoying this foodie view of the US! Please come over to Italy one day and give the markets a go! Have fun and mind those blisters. Looking forward to Chicago! Xx

    At first I thought the rat was stomping on the 4WD and was quite amused – it seemed like a little bit of King Kong in your travels – oh well maybe he is off to stomp on some vehicles. Sorry to hear your feet are giving you grief – take it easy on them. And open the kombuchu bottle slowly, then as soon as it starts to fizz, close the lid again and let it settle – this stops fizzy drinks exploding on me most of the time! I am enjoying your travel excitement – glad it is going well.

    Someday, we shall go raspberry picking, I’ll bake you stuffed 8-ball zucchini, and we can chatter on about all things, all day. It’s just more of an incentive for you to return!

    Hope your feet are healing up quickly. <3

  20. Debi

    Raw oreos?? I hope you find them again and try some. I’m intrigued!

  21. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    OK I can attest that eating a whole jar of kimchi is not good for you! I did that one night in Japan and dreamt of murder and blood all night. I didn’t eat it for about 10 years afterwards 😛

  22. lizzie - strayed from the table

    Those tomatoes look delicious.

  23. penny aka jeroxie

    Total envious babe!

  24. Marta @ What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today?

    I like spend a day on a market, especially when it’s sunny and nice 🙂 And this rat on a track is so cool!

  25. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Crazy tomatoes everywhere!! Yeah maybe pace out the sauerkraut…one night? Surely not possible. Surely. I did not come across that market last year…must. go. again.

    I can’t wait to go to NYC again! Especially after seeing all your pictures and omg omg omg it’s amazing all the produce hehe 🙂 So nice to see that it’s so much warmer! It was freezing when I was there hehe

  27. Heather @ Sweetly Raw

    Ah such wonderful markets and tasty eats. Wish I had access to GT’s kombucha all the time. I miss it!!!
