This past weekend on a whim we decided to head down to Atwater Market with the boys. It was a beautiful day and we wanted to visit the market and go for a little walk.
Although it doesn’t particularly look it in the photos, the market was insanely busy with some beer and food festival going on and the boys couldn’t run around as freely as I (or they) would have liked. However, the market was a nice change of environment and I could see that they were pretty amazed with all the colourful fruit, vegetables and flowers.
There are great places at Atwater Market to eat or have a snack, but it was just too crazy so we headed to the canal for a little walk.
I made a vain attempt to get our Christmas card photo… ummm… nope.
And then we let the boys explore the train tracks which I think was their favourite part. Alex walked up and down the track saying ‘Choo Choo’ which was so freaking cute it broke my heart.
Next time if it’s nice, we’ll stock up at the market and have a picnic followed by some ice cream.
Details: Parking should be fairly OK but if there’s something on or it’s a nice day it can be crazy. We like to park in the gravel lot along the canal. There’s also a Metro located very close by. There is a bike path and a walking path. I don’t recommend walking on the smoother bike path with your stroller unless you want to get run over by some crazy bicyclists. The walking paths are on the south side of the river and you have to cross a little bridge to get there.
