SoNo Marketplace: An Experience Like No Other!

Sono Marketplace is truly worth visiting!

ATTENTION EVERYONE: A wonderful new European-style marketplace has come to Fairfield County. It offers a shopping and dining experience like no other. Some of the area’s best eateries and specialty shops have come together, all under one roof, to create a hip and happening one-stop shopping experience for all.

SoNo Marketplace on Wilson Ave., is truly worth a visit. Last Sunday was their grand opening, complete with Santa, carolers and a magician! Here, over 45 local merchants offer a wide variety of crafts and edibles all under one GIANT roof.

You can purchase anything from jewelry to pickles to belt buckles to olive oils to cookies to chocolates. And you could do all that while you munch on wonderful soups ‘n sandwiches or fish ‘n chips or savory ‘n sweet crepes or raw oysters ‘n clams! Well! You get the idea, right?

I thought that it is a very well planned venue, with aisles full of surprises worth exploring. There are also lots of family style benches arranged all around so you can take a break from all the shopping and exploring as you sit back, relax and enjoy a bite to eat.

As soon as you enter, you are greeted by a fabulous coffee shop: Flat White. This coffee purveyor from New Zealand is worth a try. I could not resist a cup of their cappuccino as I started my exploration of the marketplace.

Right smack in the center of the whole venue is a really great bar named “Up The Creek Wine and Beer Bar”…. offering yummy cocktails, beer and wines. How very cool!

I was so happy to see some of my favorites: Wave Hill Breads, Chocopologie and Bloom Brothers. Bloom Bothers are selling raw oysters and clams…Yum! Chocopologie offers their signature truffles and desserts along with sweet and savory crepes. Divine! Wave Hill Breads offers their wonderful breads along with a selection of soups, salads and sandwiches. Yesss!
