Food Glorious Food: Covent Garden Market

Covent Garden Market

With the sun finally shining on my frost-covered window this morning, I decided to go with a friend to the Covent Garden Market in London, Ontario (Canada). The market runs every Thursday and Saturday, bringing local growers and artisans who sell a variety of foods, flowers, crafts, and beverages.

Fresh fruits and vegetables

The market offers: fruits and vegetables, baked goods, seafood, poultry, cheeses, coffee, tea, candy, ice cream, dry goods, flowers and gifts, organic foods, international foods, and arts and crafts.

One of my favourite booths at the market was the Sweet Cakes counter. Sweet Cakes sells nothing but CUPCAKES, CUPCAKES, and more CUPCAKES. The pink booth is filled with cupcakes of all flavors and sizes. Some classic flavors include: lemon, double chocolate, vanilla bean, banana chocolate, rainbow, caramel, and pina colada.

For the holidays, they also featured a gingerbread, snowflake, and snowman cupcake. They were so adorable! The gingerbread cupcake is made with a gingerbread cake and cream cheese frosting. How delicious does that sound?

The market is great to visit year-round. In the spirit of winter, there is also a skating rink located outside the market which is usually a great sitting area in the summer time.

Covent Garden Market is located at 130 King Street. I suggest you visit it!

Anyone know of any markets they can recommend?
