The North Park Thursday farmers' market is known for bringing locally grown and crafted goods to you each week and the North Park neighborhood is known for it's vibrant craft brewing culture. What better way to combine the two and celebrate San Diego Beer Week (November 1-10) then to pair your farmers' market finds with your favorite local brews!
Get an easy start by picking up Pubcakes cupcakes; grab their 'Beer for Breakfast' treat made with Alesmith Wee Heavy, bacon and maple cream cheese frosting. Buy pumpkins from Suzie's Farm or J.R. Organics, onion and celery from African Sisters Farm, and add Golden Hills Pils from Thorn Street Brewery for this Pumpkin Beer Soup! Serve with The Grand Pumpkin Ale from Poor House Brewery.
Need something a bit more hardy? Gather veggies from your favorite farmers, ground beef from Da-Le Ranch and make this Beer Chili to devour by the fire. Not into cooking with beer? Grab dinner at the market (a spicy Bah Mi sandwich from Pho Realz, hot tamales from Gourmet Tamales or flavorful Salvadorean Pupusa) and head to Tiger Tiger to wash it all down with Flying Ace IPA.
By now it's dessert time again, so grab another Pubcake and call it a day! Cheers to a delicious SD Beer Week!
