Lunch at Atwater’s

Posted on

Atwater’s in downtown Catonsville. Right on Frederick Rd. Just up from the turn for the Wednesday market. We have become addicted to their breads. Much nicer crusts than some of the others around here. We picked up a small boule to use with soup I made, and a sliced rosemary Italian loaf. The boule. The sliced loaf already went to the car with some other goodies my better half bought.

Then, we did a tiffin to sit outside and watch the world drive by.

Today’s tiffin box included gazpacho, a rosemary Italian roll, and a small piece of dark and stormy cake as the treat. The cake didn’t make the pic. The gazpacho was amazingly good. The roll perfect. I had a Morrocan mint green tea (iced).

You could wander across the street after lunch to the antique store.

Or pop down to the Wednesday morning market, which was hopping.

The market included a visit from Elk Run Winery. Wish we could get tastings of anything at the HoCo markets. Stupid county regs won’t allow tastings.

You could also get smoked salmon or smoked trout, or other goodies from Neopol. If you live on the east side of Howard County, check out this market. Kite Hill farm also comes here, with unique meats. Today they had scrapple, and liver, and whole turkey legs. No need to buy grocery store meats with artisans like this nearby.

We picked up a few things to compliment what the CSA will bring tomorrow. Including another kohlrabi to experiment with.

CSA day is tomorrow. Can’t wait to make some interesting salads and sides. Grilling on the horizon for the weekend.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.

  1. I’ve never been to Atwaters. We’ve been picking up baguettes from The French Cafe in Old EC, and getting great bread from the CSA too. Your gazpacho is inspiring!
