I love coming to the Alemany Farmers Market. I admit, the Ferry Building Farmers Market is fun to walk through and taste (for free), but I couldn’t afford to buy the produce they sell here! The Alemany Farmers Market is much more pocket friendly. I know this because I found a ton of Asian mamas here. I, myself, walked away with 2 bunches of kale for only $1!
The fun part about farmers markets is the food stands! True, everything here is a little dirtier than the gourmet food stands at the ferry building, but that’s what makes the this market more authentic, right? K and I opted for lunch at the pupusa stand. We watched a Hispanic woman standing in the back pounding the dough and throwing them on the grill.
We each got a pork pupusa with a side of pickled slaw and a cup of the smoothest horchata I’ve ever tasted. The pupusa was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. And, the sauce they served it with was HOT! All this for $6 a person!
