Super Bowl & Valentine’s Day Suggestions from the North Park Thursday Market:
Hosting a Super Bowl party on Sunday, February 3rd? Look no further than the North Park Thursday Market to shop for all your appetizers, entrees and desserts! Local vendors Baba Foods and Majestic Garlic both sell delicious dips to snack on for the pre-party, with veggies like celery and carrots available at the farmers stands.
Da-Le Ranch is a small, sustainable family farm servicing Southern California and local farmers markets. Pick up the best beef, pork, lamb, fowl and eggs from them to create a delicious dinner time dish!
If you’re picking up eggs from Da-Le Ranch, consider making deviled eggs as another appetizer for your Super Bowl party! Looking to add some spice to them? Celeste Jalapeno Relish provides the perfect secret kick to bring the heat up a notch!
