Farmers' Market and Family Festival

It's that time of the year again! Last Wednesday, My family and I went to the Farmers' Market that was held at our local mall. They sell different things there such as fruits, food, clothing, handmade soaps, and many more. It's an event you totally wouldn't want to miss. TRUST ME!
This is the 10th year anniversary of the Farmers' Market! Yay!
No wonder it was so packed:DDD

This is the famous "Kettle Kooked PopKorn" booth. They sell the best kettle corn you will ever taste. Every time we come here, we always have to buy it. The line was extremely long. I wish I would've taken a picture for you guys to see:(

I just had to take a picture:D Maybe they deliver? Hmmm.

It was a very busy day, indeed! I saw a lot of my friends there that day:D

Mango-flavored Italian Ice! This was really good. My siblings and I got some the moment we got there. It was really cheap too. $3 for an 8 oz cup. We were enjoying its tasty goodness while roaming around the market.

My sister got the strawberry-flavored one. Doesn't that look so inviting? It makes me want to go back and get some. Too bad it's only held on Wednesdays.

Please excuse the photo quality! It was very sunny:D

Pony rides:D

I wanted to ride them too. But of course, it was only for kids. Look at that little girl. So cute!

Greek Food! I've never actually tried this. I think I'm going to next week.

The Funnel Cakes must have tasted really good. Look at all those people!

CREPES! This was the booth my sister first went to. She loves nutella crepes. (I think that guy caught me taking a picture! uh-oh. haha.)

They even have a band to entertain people.

And wall climbing. But...they're for kids too. How sad. I think children ages 4-13 are the only ones allowed.

A huge whale jumper! They really know how to entertain kids, huh?

And in less than 5 minutes, you can get a caricature of yourself, your kids, or even you and your boyfriend;D You can also hire them for a party you're going to have. How exciting!

The smell of the grilled Shish Kabobs were filling up the whole market. It smelled so good and it looked very delish.

They also sold HUGE strawberries. Really red. Sorry if it doesn't look like it in this picture. I'm still working on my editing skills. haha.

more fruits....

and loaf cakes for $5 each.

Orchids for sale.

and all kinds of flowers too. Don't they look so pretty!

My mom bought 2 large packs for $5 each. (my brother ate the other one while we were at the market. grrr.) And a small pack for $2.

a close-up just for you guys:D

Freshly roasted peanuts for only $2.

They were really crunchy.

We also bought watches. My sister got the blue one. And of course I got the pink one. They each cost $10.

The Farmers' Market is a place where every family goes. It's so much fun. There's lots of things to do and lots of booths to see:D For those of you who live in LA, you definitely have to come see it. I guarantee that it won't disappoint you. And for those who live outside the country, don't forget to come and check it out when you come visit LA. The season usually starts around the month of April and ends on October every year:D

Happy Saturday! And I wish you guys a very exciting 4th of July!!!
