Pupusas El Salvador

Once you have a pupusa, you'll understand why market-goers wait in line. The Salvadoran staple starts with a thick corn tortilla that's made similarly to a pancake. Once golden, each one is piled high and handcrafted with your choice of delish fixings. I chose pork and cheese. Tangy pickled cabbage and a homemade, tomato-based sauce top it all off — you can choose between hot or mild. Note: they're huge (like the size of your face huge) making them totally worth the $4.50.

Fresh Cafe and Market

Beets and lemons, a marriage you never saw coming. That's right: beet lemonade. It's a light, refreshing taste with a pop of color. Feed your eyes and your mouth. It's served in a convenient to-go cup, too — lid and straw. Cost? $5 even. It's the perfect way to keep hydrated and fresh as you peruse the farmers' market. Not a beet lover? Stick with the original, or try one of their sweet fruit smoothies or cool wheatgrass drinks.
