In theory I love to shop at the Carmel Farmers Market. In reality I love to sleep in on Saturday mornings. Consequently, I am not among the throngs of perky visitors who make it to the market by 8:00 a.m.
I didn’t think I was missing too much by strolling in around 10 but I wasn’t sure. So last week I decided to show up around 8:30 and mine the market for hidden treasure. I asked some vendors to name the item in their booth that usually sells out first.
These fabulous pretzels from A Taste of Philly are the only offering at the booth. There’s usually a long line to get them and I happen to know they are addictive.
3 in 1 Restaurant’s best seller is the pupusa. Pupusas are made from thick corn tortilla and stuffed with cheese, chicken or pork.
These little bundles of goodness or rolls from the BrotGarten are a farmers market favorite.
With a little luck and a good night’s sleep, I might just get to the market early enough to add some more best sellers to my list.
