Most people shop at farmers market to buy ingredients that they will cook with later, but the local markets have become a hotbed for chefs to try out new concepts, some of which have led to food trucks or brick-and-mortar restaurants.
Michelle Cheng (@foodieisthenewforty) and Lisa Goodgame (@thereallisag) both recently posted photos from Mum Foods, a new food stall at the Cedar Park and Mueller Farmers Markets on Saturdays and Sundays, respectively.
Chefs Geoff Ellis and Matti Bills have already garnered a following for their wagyu brisket and pastrami, which they serve on their own or on sandwiches made with their homemade brioche. Not in the mood for lunch just yet? Goodgame posted this photo of Mum’s brioche French toast with peaches, honey, whipped cream and pecans. (Cheng wrote about her lunch over on her blog, Foodie is the New Forty.)
Mum Foods has a Facebook page and an Instagram account (@mumfoodsatx), but in order to try the food, you’ll have to make it out to one of the farmers markets. Saturday’s market in the parking lot of the Lakeline Mall runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Sunday’s market under the Browning Hangar at Mueller operates from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
