Favorite Chow at your local Farmer's Market

I like the Kettle Corn and Roasted corn at the Northridge FM on Wednesdays. The lines get ridiculously long, though.
Also, the duck egg vendor at the Friday Eagle Rock FM sells very good "Balut". He sells out early sometimes.
So, what is your favorite cooked/ prepared food to chow whenever you visit your local Farmer's Market?

    At least two to three years ago there was a guy at the West L.A. farmers market (sunday mornings -- off of Santa Monica Blvd. where the old W.L.A. courthouse was) who did Belgian waffles and french fries. Anyone know if he is still around? Name and website? Other places to find him? Those waffles were great -- hot, crispy, sweet, 2 for $5 I believe.

      Yes. Now on Sundays, he's at the Mar Vista one.

      Patrick is the name of the guy I believe.

          Yes. Baby steps.

          And it's late in the night.

          You might as well grab some decent coffee after at the coffeehouse nearby or pepys galley is also decent.

      Pupusas and tamales (green chile and cheese, please) from the Brentwood Farmer's Market. Although the folks that do the breakfast burritos do an awfully good job, too....

        Gourmet Tamales stand at the farmer's market in Santa Clarita. Sunday am in the College of the Canyons parking lot.

            nice to see they're still around. They still got
            that crack sauce?

              Don't forget the garlic sauce. I think the potatoes are better than the actual chicken.

              Big Mista BBQ at the Century City Farmers Market. Great brisket.
