WAL Public Market

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.

Food at WPM to try:

Metro Kitchen+Drinkery {Love every day}

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.

Fish Face Poke Bar

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.

Drinks:

Kids: Ramune (Carbonated soft drink originally sold in Japan.)

NEW DISCOVERY:

Silk Road Mint Sodas

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.

Run The Lake

Every morning I’ve programmed myself to run the lake near my house. I live literally 5minutes away from the fantastic central park right in the heart of Fremont. Like I’ve mentioned before, I live right at the edge of the Silicon Valley, a suburb residential area, within commuting distance to major cities here in the Bay Area, both San Jose & San Francisco -which I love, love love!!! So being right in the center of many cities makes living in Fremont so great!

Each morning, after dropping my older son to school, I head straight towards central park. Lake Elizabeth, located in Fremont, California, is a man made 83-acre lake. When at average capacity, water rises to a depth of about seven feet, and is exactly 2 miles all around. With many fields, and play structures around the park, with neighboring city buildings like the police department, animal shelter, and also main library. I seriously fall in love with Fremont every morning as I run the lake.

Run

Tristan is his jogging stroller, enjoying the lake view.

Jeep Overland Limited Jogging Stroller with Front Fixed Wheel

My jogging stroller is probably seeing its finest days right now. I purchased it, just about 3 years ago on Craigslist from a couple who was relocating their family to Brazil. They sold me to be brand new for only $75 (Original: $185) . After using it a couple times on trails, while Tristan was only a year old, I gave up my healthly lifestyle by getting lazy. (Boo.) Now, older, wiser, and with a 4 year old 33lb pre-schooler, I am making up for the lost time!! Pushing the jogging stroller with Tristan is do difficult to do! No lies! I love the wonderful capability of having it hold my stuff, and all the features including:

  • Essential jogging features: front fixed wheel, air filled tires, safety tether, reflectors, super grip and adjustable handle
  • iBaby sound system plays music for both parent and baby
  • Features include: speed and distance odometer, hand brake, large storage basket, parent tray with 2 cup holders and compartment music player or other essential items
  • Multi-position reclining seat with 5-point safety harness accommodates child to 45 lbs
  • Stroller stands upright when folded and you can roll the stroller folded

I cannot express how happy I’ve been lately with my new lifestyle. Everything in my life all has a balance, from the kids school schedule, to me in the kitchen, and eating right, all thanks to running into my trainer at our local Safeway. Bye bye sugary boba drinks and milk teas! I don’t need you!!!

Happy Training! Getting fit, and being happy while doing it!!
