Mad for Mod

We’ve stopped into Modmarket for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Sometimes on the same day.) You can never have too much of a good thing. At Modmarket, you get nutritious, farm-to-table foods that are prepared with whole, simple ingredients – no unpronounceable additives or hidden fillers.
If you’re curious about how your food is prepared, just go to Modmarket.com and click on any ingredient to see sourcing information and recipe details. And if you want to know calorie count or grams of protein for each menu item, Modmarket prints these and other nutrition stats directly on your receipt.
The transparency is refreshing, but you can’t feast on facts; you have to try the food. Let’s start with breakfast. Modmarket does the most important meal of the day right, offering up protein-packed breakfast plates, hearty egg sandwiches and 100-percent whole-grain waffles.
The Market Scramble is a dish that makes us happy in the morning. It’s made with cage-free eggs, broccoli and caramelized onion with aged white cheddar melted on top. Breakfast potatoes and multigrain toast add some crunch to the meal.
The waffles are also worthy of waking up early. They’re perfectly fluffy and could easily stand alone, but they’re also excellent dressed up with caramelized apple and pear compote, which is how we like to order them.
Moving on to lunch and dinner, Modmarket serves an impressive array of salads. You have your choice of entrée size or half size (we always opt for the entrée portion), and you can order straight off the menu or customize by adding extras such as flank steak, organic tofu or herb-roasted chicken.
One of our favorites is the Superfood – a hearty blend of spinach and kale topped with quinoa, feta, carrots, almonds, red grapes and champagne vinaigrette. For an extra boost of protein, we like to add the tofu, which has a pleasant crispiness to the edges.
When you just want to sink your teeth into something, Modmarket offers a range of substantial sandwiches and pizza. The Basil Chicken sandwich is particularly satisfying. Provolone, arugula, red onions, tomatoes and juicy roasted chicken breast are tucked inside a chewy ciabatta bun. Modmarket serves its sandwiches with a single pickle spear, though you can add a bag of Pop Chips or a side salad for a small upcharge.
There’s enough on Modmarket’s menu to please every taste bud and meet nearly every dietary requirement. But because this local fare is made with farm-fresh foods, the menu changes seasonally. If there’s a menu item you love, get it before it’s gone. Or, just come in and try a new fresh favorite for fall. We’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
