We ran out of food and fliers by 2 pm! So a successful day overall. And thanks to Chef/Owner Jacques Gautier of the Restaurant Palo Santo at 652 Union Street, who not only demonstrated how to make corn masa from scratch, but who also heavily promoted the Market. Thanks Chef Gautier -- I look forward to visiting your restaurant!!
We also welcomed Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez to the booth for a visit. She advised me to tell people that pasteles were better steamed, than boiled!
I'm not the best photographer, so these pictures really don't do it justice.
