Daniel and Rachel
Where do you live?
How long have you lived in the area?
Where are you originally from and what brought you to town?
Rachel is from Miami and Daniel is from the north suburbs of Chicago. We both went to the University of Miami and never left (but for a few miles north).
Please share about what you do for a livelihood or what keeps you busy during the week?
Rachel is a SAHM and substitute teacher. Dan is an attorney specializing in estate planning/probate. Kids and their activities keep us extremely busy.
How often do you come to the market?
Not nearly enough, but would love to at least once or twice a month
Do you have a market ritual? If so, please describe.
Our market ritual is to check out the entrance before making a bee line to LNB for the best smoothies.
What’s your favorite thing to buy at LNB Grovestand and why?
Clearly, the smoothies. They are beyond refreshing and filled with so many nutrients from LNB’s locally grown fruits. Sometimes we even come back for seconds. The guacamole is the best we’ve ever had. It’s finished before we even get home.
What’s your favorite thing to buy at other stands at the market?
Our kids love the kettle corn and pizza. We also like the cookies from Zak the Baker.
For parents: A favorite activity we enjoy with our kids?
Just hanging out. Doesn’t really matter what we are doing, our kids make us laugh (and yell sometimes).
I wish the market had:
Saturday hours also
Favorite market story:
We visited the market for the first time a couple years ago and discovered that my high school friend (Walt) was working with his wife Adena and had a stand – called LNB! Now, we are regulars.
Most-frequented local restaurants and what dish to order:
Not quite local, but try Mustard Seed in plantation. Everything there is delicious. Make sure to try a gourmet cupcake…they have different flavors each day.
What’s the area’s best-kept secret?
Hungry Bear! Make sure to try the honey mustard chicken sub. I’ve been a huge fan since high school and have now introduced the next generation to this best kept Kendall secret.
