Mexican Food booth at the Halifax Farmers' Market celebrates seven years 

Will move to Seaport Farmers' Market

The Mexican Food booth at the Halifax Farmers’ Market is marking its seventh anniversary this month. “It started as a fluke,” says Carolina Quintana. “I started the booth because I myself missed Mexican food, and a lot of my friends were asking me to cook for them.” Working alongside her mother, Ivonne Rios, Quintana has created a must-stop at the market, selling both packaged food and hot meals on the spot. And the real exciting news is that the pair will move their operation over to the new Seaport Farmers’ Market when the new building opens next month, and intend to open three days a week.
