Summer Fun: The Shoppes at Farmington Valley

12 Aug

There has been no shortage of fun activities going on this summer and one thing I love is visiting a new-to-us place and being able to experience something different. We were able to do just that a few weeks ago at The Shoppes at Farmington Valley in Canton, CT. The always wonderful Kat from Bird Social Media invited us to eat and shop the night away!

We started the evening off at Feng Asian Bistro where we enjoyed several unique dishes, from tuna wontons to scallops that just melted in your mouth. We also enjoyed some cocktails and my personal favorite was definitely the white sangria which was most refreshing on that warm summer evening.

Once we were stuffed to the brim with food and drinks, we headed out to do some shopping! We visited Loft, J.Crew, Olive A Little, and Simply Mac. My favorite was definitely Olive A Little as that is actually where we regularly buy our olive oil and vinegar, at their South Windsor location. They gave us an incredible swag bag filled with so many different kinds of olive oil, vinegar, cheese, and pasta.

All of the goodies! Ignore my middle of renovations kitchen please 😉

So many cases to choose from at Simply Mac!

I ended up purchasing an adorable open back top from Loft as well as a pretty statement necklace from J.Crew. Both stores were having such great deals that I had to treat myself!

The Shoppes at Farmington Valley are located at 110 Albany Turnpike in Canton, Connecticut, right on Route 44. There are over 40 shops and businesses to visit, including a Kohls and a Dick’s Sporting Goods. I can’t wait until we are able to visit again and do some more eating and shopping!
