With a wood-fired pizza oven blazing, a trailer serving hot breakfast and lunch and the smell of sausage patties wafting through the park, the downtown farmers' market has become a dining destination. Sure, you still can buy fresh-baked bread, artisan products and raw meat and produce to make your own meals, but in the past few months, hot food vendors including Bola Pizza, Dai Due and Zubik House are serving everything from breakfast pizza to acorn squash bread pudding while you shop or just enjoy a Saturday morning in Republic Square Park. Statesman videographer and resident foodie Jorge Sanhueza-Lyon captured the vibrant hot food scene and talked with market manager Suzanne Santos about the regulatory changes the city made to allow hot food in a video on austin360.com.
