Foothill Farmers Market - 2014A trip to the Foothills Farmers’ Auburn Market, open for business every Saturday in a City parking lot near the intersection of Lincoln Way and Auburn Folsom Road, in the shadow of our historic Auburn Courthouse, is an adventure. If you love to eat seasonally and like to know where your food comes from, this is the place for you. If you like to support local small business, the market is the ultimate “shop local” experience. For someone who cooks like me, the market is heaven of possibilities.

Taco-Tuesday1Most cultures have something that’s sandwich-y…if you believe the tale, ever since a peckish Earl of Sandwich, desiring to keep playing cards uninterrupted, slapped some meat between two slices of bread, we Westerners have had a love affair with portable food. Then there’s the gyro, the falafel, the shawarma, the Panini and who knows how many more. The variations are endless. The Mexican version of this moveable feast is the taco. It’s street food, it’s the food of the commoner, and it’s at its best as casual fare. Many have tried to make them trendy, but if I’m being honest, the traditional makes it happen for me.
