Dose Market

When I first heard of the idea of the Dose Market, a monthly European-style market of local fashion and foodie finds, I thought of the Brooklyn Flea and other NYC markets I’ve been lucky enough to stumble upon. I looove covering local artisan confectioners, roasters, chocolatiers, jam, syrup and preserves gurus, tea companies and other tiny companies started by one or two people that simply had to find a way to jar, can or serve up their culinary passion, and I’m all for getting them together in one place (get your next Dose July 10). I couldn’t wait to check out the yesterday’s kick-off event, where companies like Rare Tea Cellar, Truffle Truffle, Rare Bird Preserves, Sofia Vintage, Seedling Fruit, Chicago Honey Co-Op, Suitor, Sprout, Blis, and dozens of others took to a table with their wares…from which I scored a jar of Rare Bird preserves and bottle of Blis Tahitian vanilla maple syrup (try it drizzed over strawberries and chocolate ice cream)..a few pics of other favorites spotted below…Dose Market, River East Arts Center, 435 E. Illinois
