April 14th, 2014 Santa Barbara welcomed The Public Market.
Similar to Eataly in NYC & The Ferry Building SF, The Public Market (on a smaller scale) offering visitors a selection of Gourmet delicacies & artisan cuisine paired with exclusive wine and beer selections- hello, heaven!
The market still seems to be working out kinks such as lines, communal seating and all over cohesive ambiance.
My niece- Fiona (pictured below) is a BIG fan of The Public Market, bouncing around from Rori's ice cream (their children's cones with vanilla are a favorite) to the french fries at Bel Campo.
Rori's Ice Cream Children's Cone
Granted she has a children's cone & I'm wrangling a double scoop, don't judge.
Another all-star showing, Bell Campo's French fries as you can tell, Ms Fiona is a happy camper.
More roris (it's a frequent stop)
Quick stop at Granada Books then back to the market.
