CITY HALL
FARMERS MARKET

Eat Local! Locally-sourced Italian. That's the mantra of chef Luca Mafe of The Lucky Fig, one of our newest food trucks at the City Hall market. We love his "arancini" risotto balls (pictured) and consider them the best we've had. Check out this great writeup in MyTable's SideDish about the menu they tried out at last week's market. Come by next Wednesday and check out the new vendors!
