Foster’s Market is one of our favorite lunch spot when we’re visiting friends & family in Durham. We lived right down the street from Foster’s Chapel Hill location when we were students at Carolina, and although the two offer quite different atmospheres, the food is the same at both spots – scrumptious & fresh – and my meals there always hit the spot.
While I was down in North Carolina earlier this month, I had the chance to go to Foster’s with a very special guest – my two week old nephew, Pax. My greatest hope is that by accompanying me to Foster’s at such a young age, Pax will develop a strangely intense love for this delicious cafe, and will constantly beg his parents to take him to Foster’s like his favorite aunt does.
Honestly, I’ve never had anything I’ve been less than thrilled with at Foster’s, but my favorite lunchtime sandwich is the Fresh Mozzarella – with roasted red peppers, pesto, greens, tomatoes, and balsamic, served on a grilled baguette. Mmmm! Of course, lunch at Foster’s isn’t complete without a sweet treat from inside. You may choose from all kinds of candies, cookies (I get the Loaded Oatmeal!), brownies, blondies, pies, and more! Really, it’s a good thing that my sister and her family live so close to Foster’s. I cannot imagine a visit to Durham without enjoying a meal on the porch, or inside at one of the many eclectic seating options!
