Walking into Atticus Market in East Rock feels like entering a room full of your targeted ads in the best way. There are gorgeous pastries in the bakery display case, cookbooks staged next to organic produce, and coffee appliances throughout the market, and you could easily spend an entire paycheck before you even step up to order a sandwich or half-roasted chicken. Pastries like the laminated kouign amann and not-too-sweet anadama cookies are worth grabbing on their own, but you can easily put together an entire feast of mortadella panuozzi, grab-and-go green bowls, and chicken salad sandwiches. Enjoy it on the sunny front patio, or bring your spread with you for picnicking in East Rock park.
