Prairie Fire Oven/OP Farmer's Market (KC)
I had a really tasty wood fired breakfast pizza this morning at the Overland Park Farmer's Market from a new vendor/stand called Prairie Fire Oven. Good sausage and cheese with some scrambled eggs on top, but the star of the show was the crust. I was tempted to order a pepperoni pizza for lunch. Prices ranged from $8 to maybe $14ish for a 9 inch pizza. Maybe a tad expensive, but it seems like they are trying to use mostly local products. It sounds like they are pretty new to the mobile food scene, but I think it's a great addition to the OP FM.
Has anyone tried the tamale cart that's also at the FM on Saturday mornings? I've been meaning to try it, but they always seem to have a crazy line. I'm hoping that they stick around a bit into the fall and as the season winds down I'll be able to give them a try. I'm really excited about the presence of these vendors as I always felt that the FM was missing prepared food. Hopefully they are back next year.
I've had the tamales (Tamale Wizard) several times. They're pretty good, but sort of expensive for tamales. The plus is that they will top them with fried eggs for an extra buck or so.
Last year there was a Mexican guy selling them at the OP market - choice of chicken or pork, usually. I miss him - they were great, and cheap. Maybe he didn't charge enough for it to be worth his while.
Gourmet Grocer is there on the Wednesday morning OP Market. Tom is a great guy and wonderful owner. His baked goods, quiches, soups, desserts, everything is made from scratch and so amazingly good. The quiche is unbeatable. Swing by on Wednesdays! His catering operation is a favorite of mine - strawberry cupcakes and coq au vin to die for.
I agree, the food vendors at the Farmer's Markets are a real bonus. I don't go for the arts & crafts, soap stand, etc. I want food! :)
