I was lucky at last to have a free momento this weekend to pop into the fabulous Artisan Market that Williams-Sonoma hosted here in Atlanta.

I wanted to see what the market was all about, as they included some of my favorite local artisans – including Sweetgrass Dairy and Bella Cucina – but also, some friends that I’d not had the chance yet to meet in person. I had the wonderful opportunity to meet the delightful Angie Tillman of Phickles Pickles, as well as the lovely Virginia Willis, author of Bon Appétit, Y’all! Recipes and Stories from Three Generations of Southern Cooking. Both just as Southern and charming in person as online, as you might have guessed!

I snagged up a jar of tasty Phickles Wedgies { I have yet to resist green tomatoes of any variety …} along with a package of Virginia’s Heirloom Grits, which were yummy as can be without an ounce of anything to enhance their flavor.

I hope you’ll have a chance to pop into the next Williams-Sonoma Artisan Market. I’m quite certain you’ll enjoy the trip as much as I did.
