The rain took a break on Sunday just in time for the Haggin Oaks Farmer's Market to get started. Plenty of people have told me about it and I've passed by this a couple times the last 2 weekends, so I finally needed to see what has so many people packing the lot for this farmer's market.
If you've passed by it on Ming Avenue, across Haggin Oaks Blvd from Von's, then you've seen the smoke from the grill that guarantees you're going to want to check it out! My wife and I stopped in just before noon on Sunday and as busy as it looked, there was plenty of parking in the back lot, about a hundred feet from the entrance.
There's a ton of options in this market, and there's samples available from nearly every food vendor there. We sampled a few places and were impressed with the quality of the everything we tried! I couldn't wait to head toward the smoker to see what they were cooking. The lines were a little long for the hot food, but worth waiting for. We spent $11 for a tri-tip lunch burrito and a really tasty drink called a Strawberry Horchata.
If you haven't checked it out for yourself, I'd highly suggest stopping in. They have a market on Saturday's at 9500 Brimhall Road from 9am to 1:30pm, and on Sunday's at 8800 Ming Ave from 9am to 2pm.
