This weekend Janell and I headed over to Union Market in Washington, DC. This was my first go around with the market that I've heard some pretty great things about. There were vendors apart of the market's beginning as well as newer vendors showcasing fun, and inventive dishes like the Jerk Chicken egg roll Janell tried out and really enjoyed.

I myself? I headed over to Harvey's Market. A family owned butcher shop that pretty much had it all. The staff was super friendly, attentive and somehow in control of it all as the weekend craze of the market brought a lot of folks out to purchase their meats. 

I met Marty, Co-Owner of Harvey's, a sharp butcher that knew exactly the cut of beef I was looking for to compliment one of the courses I've been working on for the "A Taste of West Africa" menu. I got some Flanken short-rib for the Suya course. 

Thanks to the good folks at Harvey's!
