Nibble entrepreneurs hit the market
Nibble—the Somerville Arts Council’s culinary arm that celebrates food, culture, and diversity—is thrilled to announce biweekly residence at the Union Square’s Farmers’ Market starting this Saturday, May 13. Featuring a rotating batch of international culinary entrepreneurs, this week we’ll kick it off with delicious homemade Mexican salsas and Venezuelan arepas—griddled corn cakes stuffed with meat or vegetarian filling, cheese, and finished with homemade basil mayo sauce.

Our arepa makers are Venezuelan natives, Carolina Garcia and Carolina Salinas, both 2nd year Nibble entrepreneurs. Once you’ve tried their healthy gluten-free arepas, you’ll be hooked—just like Mayor Curtatone, who happily gobbled down a few at a recent city hall art opening! And 1st year culinary entrepreneur and Mexico native Carolina Rendon will bring over 30 years of Mexican cooking experience to dazzle your taste buds all summer long.

Grab a jar of her spicy habenero salsa for kicking up the heat and flavor to any dish. Try her medium spiced tomatillo salsa verde to pair with eggs, enchiladas, chips + salsa, or tamales. Or grab some salsa classico made fresh daily to take your next fiesta to flavor town. And what are our entrepreneurs most excited about for this summer’s farmers market?

Carolina Rendon: “I’m most excited to present something I made and worked on. It feels good to tell my sisters that I’m representing my families traditions here in Somerville. They are very proud to here this. I hope people will like it too”
