A Guide to the West Village, Part 4

Last week I began a series on the West Village, exploring some of my favorite shops and eaters in the area. I feel so blessed to live in such a vibrant neighborhood and I'm constantly stumbling upon new gems that just have to be shared.

Like this place. The Meadow specializes in artisanal salts, chocolates, and bitters, and I'm always amazed at the breadth of product this shop curates within these three categories. Add to that their beautifully arranged flowers (which are sold by the bloom, so you can make your own unique bouquet!) and the whole place just bursts with rich smells and tastes.

I was fascinated with these beautiful Himalayan salt blocks, which you can put on your stove and use for cooking, infusing your food with a delicate saltiness!

The Meadow has a full wall of salts from all over the world, all of which can be sampled before purchasing.

They have a fine collection of bitters as well–I was so tempted to buy based on the packaging alone!

The shop girls are also some of the friendliest around and very knowledgeable, which keeps me coming back again and again.

It's been so fun sharing some of my favorite places in the West Village. There are so many more amazing shops and restaurants so I hope you'll take a chance sometime to just get lost among the winding streets.

I'll do my best to keep you updated as well, here on the blog! 

Thanks again to my wonderful friend CJ, who accompanied me on this journey and made me feel so comfortable being photographed... the first time since my wedding
