SoNo Market Place Opens December 1st in Norwalk

A week prior to the official opening on Saturday December 1st, SoNo Market Place decided to sponsor a soft opening on November 23rd and I decided that tasting some good local food was a whole lot better than fighting the crowds at the mall.

All of the food purveyors were in full test-mode and my first stop was Flat White Coffee to taste the coffee described to CTbites by owner, John Palino, back in September. This was a creamy blend of rich coffee and steamed milk, a brand brought over from New Zealand, and one that should meet with great success in CT. 

But it's not just about coffee at SoNo Market Place. With over 20 food vendors and eateries, this European style market is poised to be a foodie destination. Guests lined up at Wise Guys Pizza for New Haven style pies; Norm Bloom served up fresh oysters and clams straight from the Norwalk waters, and Fish & Chips were on the menu from Gotta Nibble.  Caterering company, Festivities, has a permananet spot here with their take-out biz, "Party Express." Local specialty purveyors and well known brands such as Knipschildt ChocolatierWave Hill Breads, and Nothin' But Granola have also opened shop at the market. 

Truly, Everything from olive oil to pickles to gourmet fruit tarts can be found under SoNo's roof. 

Need something to wash it down? Try "Up The Creek," the rustic beer and wine bar centrally located in the food court area. 

You'll know where to find me on a Friday. I'll be the guy purchasing everything I need for the weekend; meats, fish, pastas, and tons of desserts. Go check it out for yourself. 

SoNo Market Place is located at 314 Wilson Avenue, Norwalk

Too bad they are advertising like politicians by littering our roadways with yard signs. How imaginative, ooohhh yard signs. I hope the products are better than the advertising. At least the sleaze balls at LAZ Parking won't be getting their grimmy hands on the parking (yet).

Strolled around Sono Marketplace after feasting on habanero spiced lobster rolls from Lobster Craft truck parked outside. We were thrilled he was there so we didn't try any of the food vendors inside the marketplace. Time will tell how this venue will evolve.

I went on Saturday and enjoyed it very much! I'm sure it'll be even better when the weather gets nice enough to eat outdoors. I wish them much success!

Sounds like Better Marketing is just sour grapes!! They had to sign a business name instead of a personal name.
