Hillsborough, NC is an adorable small town with tons of great restaurants! It is right outside of Durham, NC and not too far from Raleigh!
Weaver Street Market Wine Show:
The Weaver Street Market is a Co-Op styled grocery store and eatery in Hillsborough, NC. They sell farm fresh, local produce, meats, house-holds, food, snacks, etc! One of my favorite parts of the Weaver Street Market is their wine selection. The sell a large variety of global wines at an extremely affordable rate! But on top of that, a few times a year they have a Wine Show where they showcase around 35 wines. Not only do they let you taste all 35 wines, but they have them on a MAJOR discount.
This past weekend, I attended my first Wine Show – and let me tell you, I was impressed! I bought four wines and spent about $59 – but ONE of those wines at regular price was $53! I highly recommend checking out next seasons wine show at the Weaver Street Market!
Other Things to Do:
Other than the Weaver Street Market, downtown Hillsborough, NC has several cutes shops, wine stores, eateries, and a delicious chocolate/coffee shop! I always stop into Matthew’s Chocolates for a few truffles and a cup of coffee when I am in Hillsborough, NC!
There is also a nice river walking trail located past the Weaver Street Market, behind the parking garage. There are a few benches to sit and enjoy the day or bring the dogs and go for a walk! The town is very dog friendly – I probably saw 30 dogs while I was there throughout the day!
A few of the restaurants that I have tried include Radius Pizzeria, The Wooden Nickel, Weaver Street Market, and now Antonia’s Italian – which is my new FAVORITE in Hillsborough, NC. I love good, fresh Italian food anyway, but I was very impressed with Antonia’s! I got fresh made fettuccine pasta with a red sauce and grilled chicken. The pasta was delicious and the chicken was amazing and grilled to perfection!
Stay tuned this weekend – We are going to be creating a Sangria recipe next Saturday! Then, with the school year quickly coming to an end, my real travel season will begin! Upcoming adventures include a small Aniversary B&B, VA Beach Neptune Festival, Carolina Beach, Jamaica twice, a Spa weekend, Barbados, Nellysford, Williamsburg, and Nashville! I love sharing my experiences with you! I hope the you will be following along on Instagram to get the inside-scoop that I only share on my Insta-Stories!
