Farmers Market at St. Phillips Plaza

Spent the morning of halloween at the farmers market at St. Phillips Plaza. I love the cold crisp air of October and supporting all things local. A little pricy, but well worth the nourishment and excitement I think. I found a cute little juice bar, Bao, and locally hand crafted english toffee. Lets be honest, the hand crafted sweaters,beads  and blankets are nice, but I'm here for the food.

5$ Bao was worth the price, sharing one made a good snack. Next time will try the vegetarian.

Spent a total of $18.04 at the juice bar including a cure all shot of ginger, a french pressed coffee, an espresso shot and the pure red drink. ( for two ). Pricy? yes. Nourished? absolutely.

On the way home from the farmers market we stopped at the Tucson Tamale Company on the North side.( more food). He had the thanksgiving tamale, basically everything thanksgiving rolled into masa. This was ok. I had the vegetable curry tamale and it was amazing. I am now contemplating making these for the holidays. Can't wait to run this idea by the most traditional Mexican woman I know, my mom. This will not go over well. Stay tuned.
