Every Tuesday, the Highland Park Farmers' Market pops up on Ave. 58, just around the corner from Otono. "It's still small," Teresa noted. "But the produce is good and we need to get more people out here."
She tasted papalo, a Mexican herb that is reminiscent of arugula, cilantro, and rue, from Angel Farms and picked up some in-season squash blossoms as well. Next was Aceved Farms, for their sweet nectarines and larger than your hand avocados. On the way back to the restaurant to open for happy hour, she repeated her if you build it they will come sentiment, promising to return the next week.
