Load up on fresh, heart-shaped carbohydrates from Pasta Amore or cured, meat-shaped protein with 2-ounce bags of 100% natural, top-round steak jerky ($5) from Just Another Jerky Vendor. Visitors can meander at their leisure through an extensive selection ranging from cupcakes and spices to specialty teas and fresh-cut flowers. At the opening-day market on November 6, parents and their miniatures will be privy to activities such as free pony rides, jumps in the bounce house, crafts for kids, and live cooking demos for baby sous chefs.
