Farmers Market and library

Over the week, we took stroll at the Old Monterey Farmers Market, which happens every Tuesday, rain or shine. It rarely rains here anyway. Loving the fruits and vegetable we can find there, some are really exotic, not a find in the supermarkets. 
 
It's also where I found kangkong and Xiao bai cai! Bought and cooked them. In addition to food, there's also sale of art and craft stuffs.

Love these strawberries
Who says greens are green
Portobellos and mushrooms

Tomato variations

We had calamaris
We also visited the Monterey Public library for storytelling session that happens every Thursday morning. Heap thanks to mummy Yveon for offering us rides to and fro, as the man was in campus. The storytelling session we attended was for toddlers, 18 to 36 months. It's all so interactive, from reading with simple props to music and little movements. Jare didn't have good focus, but Jazz seemed to have enjoyed. Tagged onto mummy Yveon, Jazz borrowed 6 books.

The library
Story on Hermit crabs
There are so many fun activities lined up routinely for the kids. Shall apply for my library membership soon. The good news is, there's no limit to borrowing! Just like there's no limit to acquiring knowledge. And I love reading to the kids, it's one of the best ways to build up vocabulary.
