I’ve been frequenting the Otay Ranch Farmers Market at the mall recently on Tuesdays.  We love getting the Pad-see-Ew from the Thai food vendor and lumpia from Gabina’s (5 for $2).

Which Farmer’s Market is your favorite?  Which vendors do you frequent?

Yes, someone finally made it an official day-I’m still waiting for the government to recognize it so I can get my rightfully earned day off, but until then I will go to a tequila pairing and tasting at Cafe Coyote because I’m a workaholic.
