We happened upon the food vendors right at lunch time. I had to have the duck confit baguette. So delicious and only 5 pounds. Hubby went for the unusual. A vendor called Game On featured burgers from different sources such as crocodile, kangaroo, and springbok. The last offering was camel and that is what hubby tried (I had a bite, too). The taste was a cross between ground beef and ostrich and cost 6 pounds. Very interesting and not something I have seen around RVA, yet.
We then wandered around the shops full of vintage and non-so-vintage items. A great slice of market life. Lunch is definitely worth wading through the crowds.
