17th Street Market

The 17th Street Market sometimes feels more like a museum or an art gallery than a grocery store. The aisle of Asian canned and bottled drinks is so fascinating that we have spent nearly an hour looking at labels and tipping containers upside down. One favorite find: a basil-seed drink that resembles a lava lamp, with its sensuously curved bottle and tiny dark seeds suspended in ... well, we're not sure, but they're suspended in something. We've bought more than one of these treasures (priced at around a buck) as gifts, because they're just beautiful.
