The past couple of weekends I’ve been returning back to the Warehouse Artist Lofts in Downtown Sacramento. Located in the Historic R District, this area provides food, speciality shops, and more. My first visit along R St. was to Fox & Goose, a Sacramento favorite for weekend brunches. After that, a casual family photoshoot was taken around the neighborhood as we were looking for a specific mural. If you’ve been following my Sacramento Living page, I’ve been obsessing over all the Sacramento murals new and old. I had started a post, and will continue to add more, once I get more time to edit. Check out my first SAC Urban Art post HERE.
Within the Warehouse Artist Lofts, is the Public Market, located on the ground floor. Just a building away from Fox & Goose, the WAL Public market provides excellent food, art, clothing, music, and collectables. Anything artisanal, you got it.
Shop. Eat. Explore.
Food at WPM to try:
Metro kitchen is the perfect place for a light and healthy meal! Their menu provides right sized portion meals, for a balanced diet. Healthy, clean. Perfect. Def a must try when in WALPublic Market!!
What I ordered:
The Fluffy egg & avocado toast with earl grey tea. Perfect for the rainy morning. The eggs were steamed to perfection as they were so fluffy, and paired well with the avocados.
These are my silly boys. Forgive me for their “deer caught in headlights,” smile.
What the boys ordered:
My husband got the Poke Of The Day: Which I honestly can’t remember which in particular he ordered, but it did have green & white onions, seaweed, sesame seeds, and his selection of proteins and sauces.
Proteins you can pick from are:
Ahi Tuna, Octopus, Shrimp, Ora Kind Salmon, to mussels and tofu/cucumber.
For the kids (If they don’t like fish)
Spam rolls – Similar to a spam musubi we all order at L&L’s Hawaiian BBQ, this is a pre-made spam roll cut long ways, ready to eat once you wrap it with the nori (seaweed).
Miso soup. -Served in a hot flask, you have to pour it into the bowl ready with chopped nori, and spices (Furikake). Dry Japanese seasoning which is meant to be sprinkled on top of cooked rice, vegetables, and fish. It typically consists of a mixture of dried and ground fish, sesame seeds, chopped seaweed, sugar, and salt.
Kids: Ramune (Carbonated soft drink originally sold in Japan.)
The PEAR flavor was bomb.
I have to check my local grocer if they carry this brand, because it’s mouth watering GOOD!!!!!
Cool fact: They’re LOCAL from Roseville, CA!
WAL Public Market is filled with cool stores like Kicksville Vinyl & Vintage! From old school vintage vinyl, to a great selection of vintage houseware, and furniture. As a couple who greatly appreciates these items, we could honestly be in Kicksville for hours, if we didn’t have the kids. My husband can listen to vinyl for hours, searching the crates, and looking through vinyl, as I vintage house shop. Handsdown, we’ll be back again to shop here.
