Today is National Vinegar Day, that fermented liquid that adds a special acidic note to various foods (and to clean windows – but not our focus today). Why buy mass produced versions when you can get hand crafted products? I know just the place if you travel to New York City.
The Filling Station is a terrific shop in the now-famous Chelsea Market. They have more than 15 flavors of vinegar including my favorite – Black Cherry Balsamic. It is astounding on a Caprese Salad and any number of other dishes.
The Filling Station also offers infused olive oils, specialty salts and other goodies for foodies. They have recently added the option to fill your growler with fresh craft beer. It is very much worth a visit as one of the best shops in the fabulous Chelsea Market during your next Big Apple visit. They also ship (well, not the beer – but certainly the vinegar). Here’s the link…

That Black Cherry Balsamic sounds just the thing for my lunchtime salad. I enjoyed visiting that market when I was in NYC, now more reason to return!
And to help you decide they provide small samples of the oils and vinegars to taste, but sadly not the beers. 😉
