Farmer’s Market Finds

Living in the central valley automatically means that the city I live in is surrounded by several local spots and convenient farmer’s market events. As someone who preaches the importance of supporting local, I was able to show my support for some local businesses while stopping by their booths recently!

Saturday Farmers Market

My city hosts a weekly farmer’s market which I almost never get to attend due to having to work weekends sometimes. A few weeks ago, I finally had the weekend off and definitely made my way to the market!

  • Quesadilla Gorilla – I absolutely love this place and their cilantro cream sauce! Chris and I shared an order of their chili verde breakfast quesadilla and it was amazing. I discovered this place when they were at my work’s parking lot last summer and have been obsessed since.
  • Mr. Lumpia – Lumpia is the Filipino version of the Vietnamese egg roll. Having previously lived in a more Filipino-friendly neighborhood (and obviously growing up in the Philippines), I do miss being able to eat lumpia whenever I want to. Since there aren’t many Filipino restaurants by me, I was thrilled when they were at the market! They’re good lumpias but not the best…
  • Good Boy Boba – I love a good boba! They have experimental flavors and I opted for the taro & ube milk tea and it did not disappoint. Their drink lids don’t really seem appropriate since they don’t put whipped cream – just a thought.
Some Random Market Across Work

A few months ago, I accepted the co-chair position for my hospital’s safety committee. After one of the monthly meetings, I saw a farmer’s market across work and decided to walk over since this was around noon and it did not disappoint!

  • Vali Coffee Co – I tried their iced hazelnut latte and was blown away. I’m more of a tea person but will divulge in lattes sometimes and this definitely did not disappoint!
  • Kerrib Flava – Not everyone knows this but I love chicken curry and it ranks high in my list of favorite foods. While strolling, I came across this Jamaican food truck and was curious to try chicken curry but cooked with Jamaican flavors and spices. It was good and the plantain bananas added a nice touch to it.

Until the next food adventure!

    All this food looks absolutely delicious! I have never had Jamaican food before, but I am Colombian and there are like a million Colombian ways to make plantains so I have to say I’m a little obsessed haha. That latte also sounds amazing!

    I absolutely love trying new food, and i have to say that plantain is one of my favourites. I was actually lucky enough to go to a Farmer’s Market while i was away at my son’s hockey tournament last weekend. I was the first time i had every been. Wow was it huge. AND SO MUCH FOOD. I will definitely be on the lookout for more markets

    I really shouldn’t have read this while I was hungry. It’s so cool that you have a regular farmers market that you can go too. The egg rolls look delicious!

    This all looks incredible!! I’m so jealous, the local markets near me are pretty poor. I wish we had some like this nearby. I love wandering around a good one, although I can never choose what I want x

    I love that you explore around town a lot and know your faves at the Farmers Market!! OOOOHHHHHHH I LOVE LUMPIA!!! It is a bummer that Mr. Lumpia wasn’t the best – but still gives you some nostalgic vibes. Mmmm you can’t go wrong with quesadillas either. I love your spread.

    You can’t go wrong with an iced hazelnut latte. You know you’re the real one when you can drink it in the cold hehe. I like the fusion vibes of the curry!! OK THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME HUNGRY WHEN IT IS ALMOST MIDNIGHT HERE LOL. See you soon ;).

    It’s not easy to find Quesadillas in London, at least not good ones that people recommend, but I really want to try it especially after seeing the ones you had 😁 I think trying to make the dish myself would be a good experiment this year 🙂

    Iced hazelnut latte sounds so good! My aim for this year is to venture out and try new kinds of food – so bad for sticking the same restaurants all the time.

    Oh yum! It’s great you can visit so many different markets and try some yummy foods! There are markets here in Brisbane but I always forget to visit – some on while I’m at work but I don’t always take lunch away from my desk!

    Hope that your week is going well 🙂

    I love Farmers Markets and I make sure I catch one when I visit a new place. The lumpia looks firm and nice and the plantain banana surely adds goodness to the meal.
