The Food Market in Hampden

On Sunday, we were wanting some “Funchies, Brunchies, and Lunchies” and we got just that at The Food Market along The Avenue in Hampden. They set up cones in the street to allow for greater safety of the patrons with their outdoor sidewalk seating.

I had the Fall Mimosa, which tasted just like a glorious Autumn day, and the savory turkey sausage tacos. All of the meals and drinks we got were e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. We can’t wait to go back to try out other menu items.

After you finish up here, go next-door to the Double Dutch Boutique (winky face at my previous jump rope career), which is a 2-story shop with a good clearance section. Then, take a walk down Falls Road to the north to The Greenhouse for a beautifully crafted new plant decor, and relaxing views to the west.

Good Neighbor, The Greenhouse, and 3 Pillars

One of my neighbors, Lois, owns an event planning company called 3 Pillars. For her 30th birthday, she partnered with Good Neighbor and The Greenhouse for an epic social-distancing party in Hampden. The sunset was killer that night on the outdoor patio… Happy 30th birthday, Lois!

Good Neighbor is a café and housewares shop off of Falls Road about a block away from Hampden’s main street (36th Street). Along with food and drinks, it sells high-end kitchen accessories and has a luxurious book-nook area.

Good Neighbor also owns the outdoor property next door and shares the space with The Greenhouse, a plant, floral, and design studio. You can grab a cup of coffee at Good Neighbor and relax next door in this beautiful retreat maintained by the owners of The Greenhouse.

Food was catered by Provisions Café in Germantown; it was delectable.

Check out 3 Pillars if you need help organizing an event, for this elegant party was very well-planned. Happy 30th birthday, Lois!
