Trying New Foods...

What I love the most about Farmers Markets is trying and finding new foods that I might've not known about or became familiar with! Most Farmers and food vendors are happy to explain and sample out their foods! One of my favorite foods that I had never had prior to working at the Farmers Market was a Pupusa!! I don't know how I had never had one before but better late than never!!

At the Grand Opening of the Norco Farmers Market most had never had a pupusa or heard of it, so I thought this would be a great time to introduce the Pupusa for anyone that may not know what they're all about!


pupusa is a traditional Salvadoran dish of a thick corn tortilla stuffed with a savory filling, typically accompanied bya spicy cabbage slaw. Pupusas are also a popular dish in Honduras especially in the southern regions bordering El Salvador.
The tortilla is commonly handmade from corn flour, filled and cooked on a griddle. Common fillings include one or more of cheeses, pork, chicken, black beans and or veggies! Mostly served with a dollop of sour cream on the side, pair that with one of their signature Aqua Frescas (fresh pineapple, mango, horchata or cucumber, lemon and mint juice) and you can officially fill yourself up while filling up on your farmers market shopping!  

It's extremely tasty and savory so next time you're at the Farmers Market check out what the Pupusa is cooking up and try one for yourself!
