Bobby’s Souvlaki and The Green Grocer will be at the Saturday market.    But you might ask, “Where the heck is the beignet guy?”    Rob, the beignet guy has opened a breakfast/lunch place The Parish Cafe but he will be back to the market with beignets in a few weeks.    Our chefs are a busy lot and when they are not a the market, it means they are cooking at a special event.

They are caterers and available for your special event of any size — a  special dinner for a few or a grand event for hundreds.

The market serves as a business incubator for many chefs.  Sometimes we lose people when they become successful, the market is happy that Chef Mateo Granados continues to bring his fabulous farm market breakfasts every weekend.

We have some new prepared food vendors coming in as well.

Our food court is a great place to start off Saturday morning but it is also a great place to pick up meals for later in the week….or think about the perfect menu for up coming holiday parties.

Just a few examples of the great finds at the Wednesday market.    Beautiful spring bouquets from Ridgeview Farm — just the beginning of their bouquet season and they also have some lovely little heads of lettuce.  As well as their fine produce Ortiz Bros. has fragrant, fresh lilacs .  Armstrong Valley has lot of lovely shallots.  Triple T is spring all over with broccoli side shoots and purple mizuna –The delicate leaves add crisp, fresh beauty to a salad of other micro greens or mixed with white daikon. Milder than arugula, the peppery mustard flavor is an excellent addition to soups and stir-fries, as well.   Redel’s has bulk, unflavored almonds at a great prices.

If don’t feel like cooking,  let Lata or Mi Fiesta take care of that for you.  Pictured here is a sweet corn tamale with chipotle salsa  Each is pretty darn good on its own and together – a maiz- ing.  And Lata has the best tikka masala anywhere.
