Wondrous W&M Market puts the French back in Fayette
W&M Market, corner of W. Jefferson and Second in Lexington, is so beautiful one's eyes feast along with the tastebuds. The W portion -- for wine, not a Texan -- opened earlier this year. Owner Krim Boughalem chooses moderately priced bottles from around the world and helps tentative shoppers take home a bottle likely to please. The "M" portion -- the (food) market -- opened recently. What a fine spread of cheeses, fresh breads and pastries, locally grown fruits and vegetables, and special jams, crackers, and condiments! I like the French-ness of supporting and touting local foods, while also selling some fine things that crossed the Great Water, bringing the world of tastes to us in downtown Lexington.
I discovered today that W&M sells sandwiches with a French flair for carry-out or eat-in lunch. How do these sound?
Duck confit, Mountain gorgonzola, Kentucky apple, quince jam on ciabatta/panini
Country paté from Kentucky, baby frisée, carmelized onion on baguette
Enjoy the look of France in Fayette County.
