Farm to Market Grocery and Texas French Bread open today

Farm to Market Grocery is open until 3 pm today. So far as I could tell, snacks, beer, eggs, and souvenirs were the big sellers while we were there.

We noticed that lime-squeezers and also lemon-squeezers are in stock right now. This is the time of year when it can be tough to find them. These are the enameled versions, not the squeezers made from the naked mysterious alloy.

Next door at Texas French Bread, people were talking about “power bagels.” I’d be afraid to meet one in person, weakling that I am.

This may be the first time ever that I’ve seen absolutely no vehicle in any of the parallel-parking spaces along Congress. This will change, no doubt, as sleepyheads stumble out for food and refreshment generally in the process of preparing to get out to see the Aggies parade up Congress from the bridge, starting at 1 pm.

Part of our preparation was sampling the Maine Root Ginger Brew. I don’t even like carbonated beverages much, but this is wonderful, with the true (and hot) taste of plenty of ginger and not too much sweetness. I’m eager to try the Lemon Lime next time around. The name may include “Maine,” but Maine Root is an Austin business.
