From classic barbecue and traditional Southern Mexico seafood dishes to authentic lu Mien cuisine, the food options at the Midtown Farmer’s Market are going to hit the taste buds in unique and different ways.

The Midtown Association recently announced the 2022 recipients for its “Street Food Sacramento” grant program. This year is the second round of grants being given out.

According to the association’s website, recipients get over $11,000 in valued help/resources from the association and their partners. This includes having a place to sell their food at the Midtown Farmers Market for an entire year, marketing support, social media support, technical assistance, and other resources.
