Vendor Spotlight: Baba Foods

Baba Foods produces delicious hummus and pita chips in San Luis Obispo, California and distributes them all along the Central Valley, including at the Visalia Farmers Market! (Of course!).
Baba Foods products are a delicious and healthy alternative to commonly used condiments such as mayonnaise, sour cream, and butter, and are great for serving at parties as they are always fresh and ready to serve.
Hummus is one of the world’s oldest foods, with evidence suggesting use of chickpeas by ancient Egyptians 7,000 years ago and active cultivation in the Mediterranean basin beginning around 5,000 years ago. With the emergence of health-conscious food trends, hummus has become a popular dish for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, and is a staple of modern Middle Eastern cuisine. Baba Foods hummus keeps to an original basic recipe to maintain the best nutrition – just adding some modern flavors!

Chickpeas themselves are absolutely low in fat and full of protein, and olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fat, making hummus very heart healthy. Baba Foods offers a wide variety of hummus flavors richly blended with fresh garbanzo beans, sesame, tahini, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, and spices.
Baba Foods also offers thin and crisp all natural pita chips, which make a great healthy snack. Cooked in fresh canola oil, Baba Foods pita chips come in a variety of flavors such as cinnamon sugar, garlic & herb, & lemon pepper.
Keep an eye out for specialty dips, pizzas and other unique offerings from this increasingly popular Mediterranean Snack shop!
