Owner and chef Matt founded the The Souper Market to brew up original soup and salad concoctions from preservative- and additive-free ingredients. Chicken andoullie sausage mingles with shrimp and its poultry namesake within hearty scoops of jambalaya ($3.75–$7, or $13.75 for 32 oz.), and the roasted ratatouille’s vegetable medley sets tongues to merrily dancing ($3.25–$5.50, or $10.50 for 32 oz.). Guests can gussy up the blue greens salad ($5.25) with a less tasty Bedazzling gun or a more delicious blue cheese dressing made by hand in-house, which, along with other dressings and vinaigrettes, is available for purchase by the pint ($5).
The Souper Market invests choice meats, bones, vegetables, and herbs into its stocks, which are ideal for taking home to use as a base for a homemade stew or sauce. All stocks are made from scratch and left to simmer until they’ve achieved maximum flavor-to-broth fusion ($3–$4 for a quart, $10–$14 for a gallon). The menu shifts its soup selection often, and patrons are advised to call ahead or check online for weekly specials before breaking out their spoon-tipped dinner gloves.
