A trip to the Farmer’s Market tends to inspire a sharpened focus on vegetables, and in the midst of unpacking an excellent haul of greens, Portabellas, tomatoes and other assorted delights, Sarah called to rave about the arugula and mushroom omlette that she had been served in a converted Birmingham warehouse that now stands as a coffee house/restaurant.
