17th and South pastry shop coming soon/farm market report

  • b

On my way to the 17th and South farmers market yesterday (it's Wednesdays only), I passed a storefront on South between 17th and 18th that said "Parisian Pastries - coming soon" and they were hard at work on the interior. Anyone know anything about this?

P.S. The farmers market was in full swing - highlights:

Apple lady stand:
huge ripe peaches
red, green striped, and yellow heirloom tomatoes

organic farm stand:
adorable squat little carrots

Amish stand:

and much more produce, and a baked goods stand with pies, cookies and breads.

  1. Last week I was at the farmer's market there, and I got a basket of nectarines, and when the guy picked them up, one fell out and went below the table, and as the kid reaches below the table to pick it up, the guy says to him, "get 'im another one." So the kid hesitates for a second, reaches below the table and picks up the same nectarine and hands it to his dad, and MOVES HIS FINGER over the bruised part so I can't see it. Of course I did see him do this, but I don't really care, so I didn't say anything. But I couldn't help thinking that the lord wouldn't look so kindly on their trying to deceive the english like that.

    Man those nectarines were good though. Like candy.
