The local West Side Farmers market is pretty tiny. Maybe a dozen or so booths in total, 1-3 fish/poultry/meat vendors and pizza, Mexican and American-pulled pork – breakfast taco type stand for cooked foods. There is usually a coffee vendor, but probably to everyone’s dismay, he wasn’t there. 😦 I’m not able to drink coffee, but it’s the first thing we do when we get to the market. Order coffee!
There is a flower vendor, some starter plants, wine and organic chocolatier that show up here. Sometimes, there’s a live guitarist or small band.
My hubby likes getting the Americanized taco: usually it comes with pulled pork, arugula, a poached egg and bacon on a flour tortilla, about $9-11. My go-to is from the authentic Mexican stand where they mash fresh corn meal, flatten it on a tortilla press, steam it up and serve under stewed chicken, chopped lettuce, fresh salsa and queso blanco (white cheese). Mine is cheaper than his at $5 and offers more fresh food. I always joke I should order him a fresh tortilla and have them just prepare a bowl of the filling.
Today, I came prepared! I brought my leftover brown rice, added beets and kimchi into the bowl and sprinkled togarashi pepper on top.
This is what I came home with from the market.
When I got home, UPS dropped off my nutrition bars!! My bike pal at allseasonscyclist reviewed these bars and just reading the ingredient list of organic and whole foods piqued my interest.
I bought a sampler pack.
When I get off my cleanse, one of these bars is the first thing I’m going to eat! 😉
