After my appointment, I spontaneously decided to check out the Honolulu Farmers' Market & wanted to find out why my boss religiously makes a trip to stock up on veggies for the week. Looking at produce & eating delicious food at the Farmers' Market was a nice way to end my work day vs. sitting in traffic for an hour.
I walked around the Blaisdell Concert's lawn, before deciding what I wanted to devour & almost screamed with delight, when I saw Zaratez Mexicatessen had a tent. I've read numerous tweets praising the food created by this L.A. style taqueros & pretty much sang my order to the chef. I inhaled the heavenly aroma of my Mexican deliciousness & I couldn't stop smiling as I ate the mouth-watering tacos, rice & beans because hands down that was the BEST Mexican food I've ever had in my life. I can't wait to return to their tent & sample their entire menu!
I felt like everyone walking around the Farmers' Market had a drink in their hands & I wanted to fit in with the "cool kids." There's a vendor called Pacific Kool who sells a variety of Hawaiian Ginger drinks, I loved the flavor of my sweet + tangy flavor of my Berries & Ginger drink. I also loved that I didn't feel rushed when making a decision on which Hawaiian Ginger drink I wanted to order (when there's so many delicious options, I'm very indecisive).
The fastest way to my heart is through my stomach & you'll win me over with my favorite dessert is baklava. I've always had respect for people who go through the long & grueling process of making baklava + how could I not indulge my sweet tooth especially when it costs $1.50 a piece? I'm so happy I saved some baklava for the next day, it was easily the highlight of my lunch.
I'm hoping to become a Farmer's Market regular & I can't think of a better way to support local farmers by keeping money within the community.
