|Robert strikes a pose in front of the Red Fox Inn - the oldest building in town.|
We found Market Salamander to be as charming as the town. A combination of deli, wine shop and gifts - a wonderful place to eat and then browse. I had a serving of beets with feta - yummy.
The staff was helpful and friendly. The young lady who brought our drinks told us (after some questioning by us - of course) that there was a "fox hunt" planned for Sunday - and invited us to return.
She also told us about the owner of Salamander Market's new endeavor - The Salamander Resort and Spa - scheduled to open sometime this summer.
We learned that the Salamander Market and the Resort were both the vision of Sheila C. Johnson - co founder of BET. http://press.salamanderhospitality.com/pr/sh/salamander-resort.aspx The resort should be spectacular when completed - another reason for us to return to "horse country" in Northern Virginia.
We continued our stroll, past the United Methodist Church, the Post Office and little speciality shops.

Always wishing for more time in the places I visit - I would have loved to taste the olive oils - but.... well you know the story - the people I was driving with wanted to move on to greener pastures.
so long Middleburg - perhaps I will return one day.
