if you are ever in the Santa Barbara area do yourself a favor and catch the farmers market on the intersection of Santa Barbara street and cota. It runs from 8am to 1pm and it is probably the best farmers market I have ever visited so far, fresh veggies, hummus and beautiful flowers. BUT the best part is GRANDMAS TAMALES a cute little truck parked on the corner that sells tamales, chips and soda. shoot. I grew up in Oxnard so I know a good tamale. And these are no joke, authentic & amazing. Choose from pork (my favorite pictured above), chicken or jalapeño cheese tamales. They are $2.75 each and come with two types of salsa. Careful the red is SPICY hot, and the green is theeee best! It's Saturday, treat yourself get two of each tamale and share with a friend (or not)! If you're lucky you will get to meet grandma herself, dishing up tamales standing on her little stepping stool.

Gracias abuela.
