Aptos Farms Market

Oh be still my ♥! This is one of the best farmers markets I have been to. Fresh fruit, vegys, plants, fish, beef, chicken and more. Some vendor's we have at our local market but some we don't. Lilie had fun picking stuff out, Ava had fun being strollered around by Papa Ken and sampling. Lilie picked out the freshest raw peanuts, they are so yummy we should have gotten two bags. Lilie also sampled all the different varieties of the micro greens from New Natives Organic Sprouts. She and I agreed on the broccoli sprouts but we will try other varieties. They are great on sandwiches, salad or just pick up and snack. Lilie picked out asparagus some berries and a few other things. My step-mom loved the canned salmon. I really like all the flowers and plants. Lilie was excited that they had roasted corn by a company called "Lily's Corn". With 80 vendors give or take there was something for everyone.
On our way out Lilie said she was still hungry and I wanted to pick up some coconut water so we swung but Whole Food's Market. They were sampling Fava Hummus which Lilie had to try. After trying 3 different flavors Lilie very seriously said I would like to get the middle on. The woman handing out the samples looked at me and said you have a daughter with a very wonderful pallet. Lilie looked at her like okay whatever lady. The woman asked if Ava could have a cracker and I said yes. Ava took it looked at it and handed it back and asked for dip please. The sales rep looked at me with a confused look as to say what do I do, I told her just not the spicy one and she should eat it. Ava licked the dip off and said I like it to the lady. She just smiled as we said thank you and walked off with our Alexandria Fava dip. We also grabbed a box of these cool chips by blue diamond called Nut Thins. Each box of chips is made from a different nut, almond, hazel nut, pecan each with their own flavors.
I don't have any photos due to the fact I forgot my cell phone and camera.
