Huh.  We have a local "farmer's market" Saturdays, and the first two years there was a guy there selling BBQ and it was awesome.  I got a plate every time we went and got to know him a bit.  Then he said he was retiring, bummer.  I gather he barbecued it ahead of time and brought it and reheated it in his smoker.  There are other food vendors present that would have lines to get served, and his would have 0-1-2 people ordering, it was a bit odd, but I gather this "urban" environment is full of folks who think Sloppy Joes are BBQ.

There is one stall that sells fancy crepes that are good.  During COVID the market would have few people present and I'd order a crepe with eggs and spinach and whatever.

This time of year they have booths selling peaches and apples that are good.  Today is the Arts festival in the park and probably no market.  I'm sure we'll walk through the zillion artsy booths they have set up, it looks like a lot of work to me.  We have often bought something in the past.  But we don't have much space left now, as I keep reminding my wife.

My kids gave me a large painting of Ringo's INT in the CG which I have on my wall.

You can find BBQ at our state fair, but it's not particularly great, or sought after.

Deep fried butter, on the other hand, is highly sought after.  People will fry anything at the Texas State Fair.

Deep fried bacon is pretty good also.
