We at StrongFigure Bootcamp have been working HARD and we deserve to celebrate our successes! Here are four local treats that you won’t want to miss:
- Mexican Street Corn. A little known secret that you have to try is University Exxon Convenience Store and Deli on Reservoir Street. They have some of the best savory Mexican food in the city and their street corn is perfect for summer. Street Corn is served every weekend, and the specials change daily. Find them on Facebook to see more.
- Macarons. If you haven’t been to Heritage Bakery yet then you don’t know what you are missing. If you like to celebrate your cheat foods then this is the place for you. They not only have some of the best desserts in town, but they also cater special events, host cake decorating classes, and even offer a daily breakfast and lunch menu, equipped with lots of gluten-free options!
- Old Fashioned Kettle Corn. One of our favorite places is the Shenandoah Heritage Market located near the Rockingham County Fairgrounds. There are fun shops, local produce, and a stand out front that sells some of the best popcorn around.
- Acai Bowl. If you are looking for something a bit more nutritious, then Pulp Cafe inside of Shenandoah Bicycle is a must stop for summer. Anti-oxidants and omega 3s never tasted so good! It’s kind of like healthy ice cream in a bowl-but made from fruit and nut butters, topped with organic granola. YUM! Dairy free options available!
- Smiley’s Ice Cream. Right outside of Harrisonburg in the neighboring town of Mt. Crawford, you’ll find some of the creamiest ice cream in the Valley. Smiley’s is a family run and owned shop specializing in making farm fresh, premium, homemade ice cream, sorbet, and other ice cream novelties. Their ice cream, made daily, begins its journey 75 feet away at Mt. Crawford Creamery using their fresh cream and milk. The creamery is a family owned dairy farm milking 75+ Holstein and Holstein Jersey cross cows. When getting your ice cream, make sure to save some time to tour the dairy farm too!
