The San Jose Sharks hockey team was founded when I was about 10 years old. I had zero interest in the sport, but I hated their team colors. I thought the pairing of teal and black was the most hideous combination I’d ever seen. This is extremely ironic because teal is now one of my favorite colors and I often wear it with the many black basics in my wardrobe. To make up for my misguided youth, I will make this Weekend Market a celebration of this vivid yet soothing color.
