Last Sunday at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market I feasted on the delicious cuisines of Latin America. It was a colorful afternoon, filled with dancing, music, cultural mingling, and lots of fun.
Clara, Lucia, Anna, and Gilma from Columbia and El Salvador
Colombian Arepa with chicken and guacamole
Next to my favorite guacamole at Oscar’s on Isla Mujeres, this is the best I’ve tasted in Canada.

El Salvadoran Pupusas stuffed with pork

The pupusas reminded me of Mexican gorditas – similar in flavor and goodness.
Joanann and Matia from Chile
Sooooo delicious! Flaky pastry stuffed with ground beef, golden raisins, onions, sliced eggs, and spices.

Claudia from Nicaragua
Any food with black beans tops my list of must eat foods. Repochetas made with fried tortillas, and fried fresh on site.

Claudia and Lorenia stewing with a pot of scrumptious Mexican Pozole.
Mexican Pozole (pronounced poh-SOH–lay)
Garnish with shredded lettuce, chopped onions, sliced radishes, fresh lime juice, corn tortillas, chopped avocado, Mexican oregano, and ground chile. The garnishes make the soup and the aroma – simply divine.
For more tasty Mexican meals check out my Isla Mujeres and Isla Holbox blogs. And if you visit the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market you can buy some great tasting Mexican tortillas and salsa from Linda at Super Salsas.
Arroz con Leche (Rice Pudding)
I completed my afternoon of tasty delights with a creamy rice pudding from Costa Rica and a glass of Mexican Hibiscus flower tea (Agua de Jamaica).
