It’s that time once again to start focusing on food. Amazing, delicious food. Cookies, cakes and pies, ramen burgers (yes, it exists), lobster, dumplings, cheese, bacon, beignets, buns, beer and more!

Don’t worry, I’ll give you a moment to take all that in.

All good? On November 12th and 13th the Emporiyum returns to Union Market with over 90 purveyors of food, artisans and vendors.

A ticket gets you into the marketplace, where you can sample, sip, shop and generally be immersed in all things food-inspired.

There will also be a DJ and hand-crafted items to browse and buy.

Make a day of it or just go for a couple of hours – the ticket options are flexible.
