Hehehe...I think I am addicted to these farmers' markets! These markets have so much to offer...all related to food!!! Ok, ...maybe not all, but almost! So, from Eli's tweet, I found out about Steveston Farmers & Artisans Market.
The market is located in the Gulf of Georgia Cannery...yups...it's an indoor market. Next market will be on February 13th, so if you're looking for something to do on a Sunday morning, rain or shine, check it out!
ELI'S SERIOUS SAUSAGE
110 Dunsmiur Street, Vancouver, BC
The sauce station...I love the curry ketchup and that tomato & eggplant mix (not sure what he calls it)...yummy!!!
I ordered the Original German Bratwurst on a pretzel bun. Yups...this time I didn't have to paper-rock-scissors with Buddha Boy for the pretzel bun!
Buddha Boy went with the Currywurst on a pretzel bun.

MISTY MOUNTAIN SPECIALITIES
#130 - 13900 Maycrest Way, Richmond, BC
As we were walking out...we noticed the table of mushrooms. At first we were just browsing like nosy customers, but then we quickly realized that it's Mushroom Boy's table! Mushroom Boy and Buddha Boy go way back...since their school years! Yups...they're both old...hahahahaha!
Please click on picture for larger view. For more information about Mushroom Boy's products, please visit Misty Mountain Specialties. And no...he's not the guy that's listed under "About Us"...hahahaha!
Mushroom Boy was very generous and "supported" our blog with some of his products...first was the Porcini Powder. Actually, we had the cash in our hands and we were ready to grab (the mushrooms) and toss (the money on the table) and run...but our beautiful Buddha-figures weren't very flexible and fast...hahahaha!
Next was the Truffle Oil...we sniffed the sample bottle and it was so fragrant! A very "fresh" smell. We will do a comparison one of these days with the one we bought from Gourmet Warehouse.
Last, but not the least, Portobello Mushrooms. These were more "plump" and "meaty" compared to the ones I bought from T&T...but, to be fair, I will compare the two again in the future at the same time...side-by-side...hehehehe!
Various Locations, Coquitlam, BC
778-867-8852As we were leaving the market, we went for more food! Something different...something called Langos.
Langos is a Hungarian deep-fried flat bread. Traditionally, this "snack" was baked in a brick oven, however, nowadays, people rarely have brick ovens, therefore, deep-frying langos became the modern day norm.Buddha Boy ordered the Garlic & Cheese Langos...this tasted good! Though a bit salty...but it was so tasty! It kinda reminded us of a deep-fried Chinese donut (炸油條). I suggested to Buddha Boy that next time, let's order a langos from Ovenmonkey and wrap an original German bratwurst from Eli's, then top it with chicken chili from Chili Tank...heheheheh! Mmm...drooling...hehehehehe!
