So tonight (Friday) I was at the Eagle Rock farmer's market. Now amidst the Farmer's stands, the guy who sells non-chicken eggs (don't ask me what kind, I only know there are big and some are purple), the kids stuff and the local merchants who sell other things. There are also the people cooking food for the shoppers. Here you will find two stands that I must point out. They are two stands that displaced Southerners must know about.
First, the Kettle Corn stand sells boiled peanuts. Boiled peanuts are hard to find in this town. He doesn't have them every week, but when he does have them, they're pretty good. It's $2 for a pint and $3 for a quart.
Then there is Big Tex Morgan's BBQ. He is a local caterer. He does not own a restaurant, but he's got really good BBQ. He is the reason I didn't give up on tr-tip as a BBQ-worthy meat. I especially like something they serve called "Geronimo's Nachos." (Geronimo is one of the cooks). Corn chips, chopped tri-tip, chili, nacho cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream and jalepeno's
The Farmer's Market is on Friday evenings and is located near the intersection of Eagle Rock Blvd and Colorado.
