The Pickled Peach Opens New Market in Davidson

If you read our last post, you know that our weekday diets are largely comprised of quick bites; inhaled just slowly enough to enjoy them. Workday lunches can be tough: of course they need to be fast, but I also find that cravings are much more specific when I’m halfway through a hectic say, Wednesday, than they would be on the weekend.

A typical weekday lunch has a few requirements for me:

  • Moderately healthy, so I can feel fueled
  • Satisfying enough that I won’t need to stop work for a snack at 3:00 PM
  • Light enough that I won’t be asleep by 2:00 PM
  • A little something sweet to make life worth living

One of my favorite ways to meet this criteria, is by visiting The Pickled Peach. Located in downtown Davidson, it has become simultaneously one of the most convenient options, and one of the most indulgent ones. I don’t call it indulgent because it’s unhealthy, or even outrageously expensive – it’s just that good.

Already a huge fan of their lunchtime fare, I was ecstatic when I learned they would also be opening a market. I stalked its progress multiple times while waiting for lunch orders (like their BLT), and earlier this week I finally paid a visit to the finished product.

In a beautiful adjoining space, the market currently offers beer, wine and specialty groceries.

In the cooler, I spied organic veggies, local eggs, mascarpone, bone broth, and a cold-pressed juice I took for the road.

The near-ceiling-height shelves were lined with wines, bitters, and snacks; as well as kitchen staples like apple cider vinegar, nut butters, and coconut sugar. I’m really looking forward to trying some of these, especially the goat milk caramels, and coconut jam.

The market also offers freshly-made coffee, tea, and smoothies.

The menu available today included:

  • Blackberry – blueberry, lime, roasted beet, and maqui berry
  • Pineapple – banana, lime, avocado, spinach, and camu berry
  • Orange – coconut, grapefruit, vanilla, and maca berry
  • Peach – mango, lemon, cayenne, and yacon root
  • Strawberry – pomegranate, acai, and mint
  • Matcha – apple, almond butter, kale, and avocado

I opted for the Strawberry smoothie, which was both pretty and tasty. I’ll definitely keep my eyes peeled for the new smoothie bowls, which the menu notes are coming soon (I’m particularly excited to try the chocolate option, which will have avocado, almond, cocoa powder, and an almond butter sauce).

I imagine the opening of this new market has further cemented The Pickled Peach’s status as a Davidson mainstay. Signs currently posted on the coolers boast a slew of new items to come, including milks, cheeses, and take-home dinners (which as a lazy person who hates to cook, I cannot adequately describe my excitement for). Needless to say I’ll be poking my head in to see what’s new, every time I’m next door for a BLT and a brownie.
