Whether you’re stopping by for a festive nosh, or picking up some farm fresh finishing touches for your party, make the North Park Farmers’ Market your go-to spot for your Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Find chils and salsa and fresh tamales full of local ingredients from Gourmet Tamales, and Salvadorean Pupusas ready made and delicious.  For at-home cookin’ Poppa’s got fresh fish for making fish tacos and Ranchwood Deli has pulled pork ready for a carnitas variation; try them on Don Tommy's jalapeno tortillas smeared with a little vegan chipotle Bitchin’ Sauce for a spicy modern Latin kick.  Slice some grilled chicken from Da Le Ranch and lay it over a bed of Suzie’s Farm lettuce, top with avocados from Paradise Valley Ranch, tomatoes from Valdivia Farms, and any other veggies that catch your eye you’ve got a new twist on taco salad.  Olé!

Going for great guacamole? Avocados are ripe and ready from Paradise Valley or R&L Farms. Cut avos into chunks and mash slightly with a squirt of farm-fresh lime, some chopped tomatoes and cilantro from Valdivia Farms, garlic from Suzie's Farm and spring onions from JR Organics. Just add margaritas!
