For as long as I can remember I have been a huge fan of the Apple Market. Few things can top their amazing chicken salad, plus they have a full deli which serves homestyle lunch and dinner options that are absolutely delicious. Plus it is my favorite place to get a Drowsy Poet latte and peruse the aisles to find foods you can not find anywhere else in town. When I learned that Apple Market is the destination for Reis & Irvy’s new Frozen Yogurt Robots I was stoked. I never needed another reason to visit Apple Market, but I will be taking Midge to check this out for sure!
