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. In addition to her fresh produce, Isabel’s is famously known for her freshly made tamales (veggie, cheese, jalapeño, and bean), available at Thursday and Sunday markets, and breakfast burritos, available at Tuesday and Sunday market. Isabel’s well-known tamales and burritos are best paired with her homemade tortilla chips and salsas. Treat yourself to something special at Isabel’s Tamales & Produce at each of our three weekly markets.
