Primavera Tamales

TEL: (707) 939-9350

Local chefs and tamale devotees line up early before Primavera's red umbrella at this Saturday-only stand in the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market. The organic tamales come in traditional MexiCali combinations like gooey BBQ chipotle bean with white cheddar, or dairy-free iterations such as butternut squash with green chili. Every week brings a different regional Mexican breakfast menu, making it possible to nosh on chilaquiles Aguascalientes, a heaping plate of scrambled eggs, refried beans, and avocado with all the fixings one Saturday and crispy beef-brisket taquitos with guacamole and tomatillo salsa the next.

Insider Tip:

Call Primavera on Friday if you want to purchase some of their in-store stone-ground, organic masa at their stand on Saturday.
