Today we ventured out to Mt. Airy. For a few errands and a chance to try a new place for lunch. I love Main Street Mt. Airy. All the old buildings. Like the Country Store, and Concettas, where we had lunch.
Concettas Main Street Bistro is just on the south side of Main Street, down the hill from the big parking lot. If you want cannoli shells or filling, tiramisu ladyfingers, pizzelles, Sun of Italy products or Italian made pastas, they have them. Lots of other good things too. This is a neighborhood place. People are super friendly. We went in and ordered an Italian spicy cold cut sub for him, a Concettas club made with turkey for me, a couple of San Pellegrino blood orange sodas, and sat there enjoying the day.
Followed by a trip up the street to Wagners to get some good lamb chops for Valentines Day.
Which are now happily being marinated in red wine, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
While there we also saw a special on wild Texas Shrimp so there will be surf and turf Saturday night.
Heading back across the road, we stopped at Tractor Supply to see when they will be getting the spring vegetables in, particularly those onion sets that did so well for me last year in the garden. It is Dollar Days there, and we stocked up on suet to keep the birds happy.
Suets are 6 for $5. You can’t find a better price for suet around here.
They also have baby ducks in the pens. The chicks don’t arrive until the end of the month. But “M R Ducks” (showing my Baltimore upbringing here). No pics allowed of the ducks or chicks.
All in all a pleasant couple of hours in one of the special old main streets in the area. Full of mom and pop stores, quaint restaurants and an outstanding butcher.
Next time, stop by the new art gallery, which is downstairs from Superfoods On Main, an organic grocery store a few stores west of Ben Gue’s antiques! So glad you visited. 🙂
I will have to check out both places. Not looking for large amounts of art these days, but it sounds interesting. As for that organic grocery store, I need to see that for inclusion in the local resources pages.
No worries, just thought you might want to know about it. Here is the link to the organic food store: http://www.superfoodsonmain.com/ In the picture, the art gallery’s door is the one to the right, the one with no awning. It’s downstairs of Superfoods. I hope you enjoy one or both during your next trip!
