Dose Returns for First 2012 Market

February 09 2012 - 2:15 PM

Hopefully, Dose Market's absence from the River East Art Center in January didn't make you forget this high-end monthly bazaar. This Sunday from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M., the market is back, featuring an array of local food vendors, as well as housewares, jewelery and clothing. But back to that food part… This month, Mark and Liz Mendez of the new critically-acclaimed Vera will partner with Chicago-based importer JDY Gourmet to sell some of the Spanish products that they use at the restaurant direct to shoppers. That includes real, sliced-to-order Iberico ham, seafood salad, piquillo peppers, and saffron.

To wash down those ham slices, shoppers can pick up a cocktail from Pickled, a pop-up shop from The Bedford's chef Mark Steuer and Clint Rogers, bartender/mixologist for The Gage and Henri. The Pickled team will sell the Colonel Kurtz cocktail, a morning-appropriate drink made with gin, lemon, pickled ginger syrup, lemongrass-pickled chilies and soda. Of course, non-alcoholic preserves like turnips and pickles will also be on hand. Rounding out the food choices are baked goods from Celestial Kitchens, plus hot pastas and meals from Ripasso. If that hasn't whetted your appetite enough, check out the beautiful video below:
