Moraga Farmers Market: tamales, kielbasa, and bao... in Moraga?

jmarek | Jan 20, 2008 07:58 PM

Went to the Moraga FM today -- which was much better than I would have expected. Good winter produce selection, plus some surprises:
- Had a great Salvadorean chicken tamale from the tamale stand. One of ~6-8 different types of tamales. It had a very nice almost custardy corn texture, with flavorful chicken in red chile sauce. It was considerably better than the Mexican tamales from Tamale Queen I got last week
- Take-home frozen Chinese dumplings in 10-15 different varieties. I didn't get the name, but I think they are based in Hayward. Got some good looking fairly large pork buns in the freezer -- 30 pieces for $13.
- Polish / Russian: stuffed cabbages, kielbasa, piroshki, cheese blintzes, etc. I wasn't fond of the kielbasa sample. Seller said he gets it from New Jersey. I think it pales in comparison of the stuff from Chicago (via Delikateski in Concord, Polish Deli in Palo Alto, or bringing it home myself). The piroshki looked good -- maybe next time

It's not the Berkeley market, but I like this one better than Walnut Creek or Danville.
