The Eagle Rock farmers’ market features two stands that all displaced Southerners must know about, says czaplin. The Kettle Corn stand sells boiled peanuts, $2 for a pint and $3 for a quart. They aren’t available every week, but when they are, they’re good.
Big Tex Morgan’s BBQ is the stand of a local caterer with great barbecue. “He’s the reason I didn’t give up on tri-tip as a BBQ-worthy meat,” says czaplin. Also check out Geronimo’s nachos (Geronimo is one of the cooks): corn chips, chopped tri-tip, chili, nacho cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream, and jalapeños.
The Eagle Rock farmers’ market is on Friday evenings from 5 to 8:30.
