Isabel's Tamales and Produce

Hailing from Independence, Louisiana, Isabel and the Mendez family grow a variety of produce on their farm, ranging from okra in the summertime to broccoli and cauliflower come winter. This time of year you can find peppers, muscadine, eggplant, tomatoes, and a variety of other in-season produce on their tables. In addition to her fresh produce, Isabel’s is also famously known for her freshly made tamales (veggie, cheese, jalapeño, and bean), available at Thursday market, and breakfast burritos, available at Tuesday and Sunday market. Her well-known tamales and burritos are best paired with her homemade tortilla chips and salsas. Come late September, Isabel’s will also be offering pupusas - a delicious Salvadoran street food made of a thick corn tortilla and stuffed with a savory filling! Isabel’s pupusas will be freshly cooked at market, filled with your choice of beans & cheese or spinach & cheese, and served with curtido, Salvadoran cabbage slaw. Let the countdown to enjoying this delicious, savory dish at market begin!
