Refreshing Summer Treats from Marketfair

Looking for the perfect summer refreshment? We’ve got you covered! These three refreshments are guaranteed to cool you down in the summer heat here in Fayetteville.

Craving something sweet and fruity? This light banana berry smoothie, inspired by the tasty offerings at Good Living Coffee Zone, is the perfect breakfast or snack.

  • Combine 2 cups frozen mixed berries, 1 cup strawberry flavored yogurt, 1 banana sliced, 1 cup milk and ½ teaspoon of sugar in a blender
  • Blend until smooth and enjoy

Classic sweet tea is guaranteed to satisfy just about anyone, especially around lunch time with a sandwich from Which Wich.

  • Sprinkle a pinch of baking soda (to help with bitterness) into a 64-ounce glass pitcher
  • Pour in 2 cups boiling water and add 6 tea bags. Cover and allow to steep for 15 minutes
  • Remove tea bags and stir ¾ cup of white sugar until dissolved
  • Pour in 6 cups cool water and refrigerate until cold

Watermelon soda from Rocket Fizz is always a favorite summer flavor– try these watermelon popsicles for the perfect pick me up after a hot day!

  • Add 2 ½ cups of cubed watermelon, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, ¼ cup white sugar and ½ cup raspberries into a blender
  • Blend on high until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth
  • Pour the mixture into ice pop molds and insert sticks
  • Freeze overnight

Fall Recipes from Marketfair

The holidays are a time where many of us can be found in the kitchen! Why not experiment with some new, easy dishes and treats? Here are three awesome fall recipes inspired by our Marketfair restaurants:

Put your Thanksgiving leftovers to good use by creating the ultimate savory sandwich, inspired by Which Wich’s Thank You Turkey Sandwich!

  • Toast two slices of bread of your choice
  • Add leftover sliced turkey – thick or thin!
  • Add leftover stuffing
  • Top with two tablespoons of cranberry sauce

Your leftover veggies don’t have to go to waste, either! Heat up the kitchen with an easy Hibachi Vegetables recipe inspired by Mikoto Japanese Express.

  • Slice vegetables of your choice (zucchini, carrots and onion work well!) and saute in oil
  • Once the veggies are soft, pour in one tablespoon of soy sauce, two tablespoons of terryaki sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper
  • Cook until tender, about 10 minutes
  • Sprinkle with seasame seeds and serve hot!

If you’re not looking to whip up food in the kitchen but want a tasty seasonal beverage, try Rocket Fizz’s Pumpkin Pie flavored soda or make your own Pumpkin Spiced Latte at home!

  • In a small saucepan over low heat, whisk ½ cup of milk, one tablespoon of sugar, one tablespoon of pumpkin puree, a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice and ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Simmer for 5 minutes. Whisk in remaining 1/2 cup of milk
  • Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the pulp. Place the mixture back in the pan and whisk for 2 minutes while it simmers
  • Add ¼ cup brewed coffee or espresso and whisk until foamy

How We Said Goodbye to Summer!

Around 400 members of the Fayetteville community gathered to say goodbye to summer and hello to the new school year at our block party last weekend! We had a blast with everyone – from eating delicious free food from Which Wich and Mikoto Japanese Express, to visiting the complimentary face painting booth and playing outdoor games from Gander Mountain. 

Here’s a recap of some of the fun activities that went on and were made possible by our Marketfair shopping center stores: 

  • The Rocket Fizz soda tasting station and bottle ring toss game were definitely crowd favorites! The candy and soda pop shop also raffled off gift baskets and gift cards to a few lucky winners.
  • DJ Tommy King kept the party going with his fun mix of tunes!
  • Sports lovers enjoyed our interactive football and volleyball toss station provided by our newest tenant, Kids in Sports! Some raffle prize winners also went home with backpacks and gift cards!
  • Many guests left with other raffle prize winnings like free movie tickets to Carmike, gift cards, backpacks, a tablet from H.H. Gregg and free one-year memberships to Planet Fitness.

Thanks to everyone who came out and made this year’s Back-to-School Block Party a huge success! We are so grateful for everyone’s support – together we raised hundreds of dollars for our charity partner the Cumberland County District PTA Council, and we’ll also be donating another $1,000 on behalf of Marketfair. Here’s to a great 2016-2017 school year!

Our Top Picks from Which Wich Superior Sandwiches

If you’re unsure of what to get from the new Which Wich at Marketfair Shopping Center, here are five of our favorite orders from Which Wich Superior Sandwiches:

  • The Wicked is Which Wich’s signature sandwich that includes five meats – turkey, ham, roast beef, pepperoni and bacon – and three cheeses of your choice. If you want to add a little extra kick to it we suggest adding red onions, lettuce and tomatoes.
  • For the veggie lovers out there we recommend a vegetarian sub option like the Caprese sub which is made up of mozzarella, pesto and tomatoes. Adding avocado, caramelized onions, spinach and tomatoes just adds greatness to this veggie sub!
  • Like keeping things simple? Be sure to try Which Wich’s Turkey sub! Spice it up a little with some bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, banana peppers, crispy onion strings and ranch dressing.
  • If you enjoy trying subs that aren’t necessarily inside of the box, go for the Elvis Which that consists of peanut butter, bacon, honey and bananas. Try this one cool as a Coldwich or toasty with a Hotwich.
  • Needing a little taste of the sea this summer? Try the tasty Surf & Turf sub with crab salad and artichoke hearts. To make this sub even more interesting, try topping it with sweet chili sauce, spinach and cucumbers.

There are endless options of delicious subs at Which Wich Superior Sandwiches and we can’t wait for you to try them all! Find out more about Which Wich and explore their great menu at www.whichwich.com.
