Spring is here, the C’ville City Market is open – what a wonderful PLACE!

The City Market opened today marking the start of the 2013 season.

The weather was beautiful this morning, and downtown Charlottesville was filled with people, music, and food.  How nice to live in a PLACE where a simple  trip downtown feels like a special holiday excursion!

Baggby’s is still my favorite “place” to cool off before heading for home after a day at the City Market and on the Downtown Mall!  Check out my post in summer 2009 …

My favorite place for enjoying the Charlottesville Downtown Mall is the corner seat in the angled window in Baggby’s Gourmet Sandwiches.  From this seat  in the comfort of air conditioning one can see City Spaces, City Hall, the carousel, the Free Speech Monument, and the Pavilion – “people watching” at its best!  At the same time you can enjoy coffee or cold drinks, tasty sandwiches, and fat-free frozen yogurt.  You may choose to sit at the outdoor tables, but on a hot day after walking up and down the mall, I always go for the AC!
