Frida Café

There’s no question that Frida Kahlo lives on in the hearts of many artists and creatives, and now she can be celebrated in Downtown Fresno at Frida’s Cafe. Delicious drinks with names like Mayan Xoco, White Rose and Smoked Vanilla are included on the menu inspired by Mexican culture. Also to be enjoyed are brightly colored Mexican rolls and sweet breads fashioned in teal and pink hues, representing Kahlo’s use of color in her artwork. Her signature eyebrows and flower crowns are also represented on the walls and décor throughout the café. If strolling through with your four-legged friend isn’t an option, you can take advantage of their mobile ordering. www.myfridacafe.com





Planet Vegan

After adopting a plant-based lifestyle and seeing the lack of vegan eateries in the Fresno area, the owners of Planet Vegan launched their food truck specializing in gourmet burgers. From the looks of their social media posts, their burgers seem like they can easily rival some of the most popular food chain restaurants. Their simple menu can be customized with their signature sauces and side options. You can find their truck in Fresno and Visalia. www.planetveganburger.com





The Market

It’s refreshing to find an independent grocer in a big city that’s sprawling with large chain stores. From the moment you walk into The Market, you know there’s more than just a great selection of products. The Market takes pride in local agriculture and the community in which they serve. Their store environment is filled with quality service, hard-to-find products, locally produced food, a true fish market, artisan breads and specialty cheeses, and a gourmet deli amongst many other unique shopping experiences. The icing on the cake is the staff who take the time to offer their help and take pride in keeping their displays clean and organized. www.themarketfresno.com





Farm Dog Juices

Priding themselves in being the only farm to bottle juicer in the United States, Farm Dog Juices is a family-owned farm that grows, packs and juices their stone fruit, pomegranates and citrus. Their raw juice is cold pressed and bottled using some of the most innovative technology process that eliminates almost all of the microbial content, increasing the shelf life of 10 times the length of a simply raw juice. These juices can be enjoyed in pomegranate, orange, pineapple and lemonade flavors. They also offer a new line of wellness shots called Pur Shots.

Valley Food Dude

If enjoying freshly prepared meals and spending more time with your family is something that you’re looking to gain in the new year, then Valley Food Dude could be the resolution for you. The food service was started by a couple of busy parents who wanted to help other parents enjoy their time around the dinner table with their children. They offer an array of different tasty options and the meals are delivered straight to your door. We also love that they partner up with organizations like Feed the Frontlines Fresno, serving the Fresno and Clovis areas.

Quesadilla Gorilla

Simple, friendly and fresh are the key ingredients to Quesadilla Gorilla’s success. They’ve become experts in turning a familiar comfort food into a unique and gourmet experience with fresh and homemade salsas that can’t be easily recreated at home. Once you try their quesadillas, it’s easy to see why Fortune Magazine ranked them #3 on their list of Fastest Growing Inner-City Businesses. Visalia, Fresno and now Hanford all have brick and mortars to satisfy your cravings or you can find their food truck in Three Rivers on the way to Sequoia National Park.

The Local

This family-owned restaurant is located in Old Town Clovis and the owners spent more than 20 years listening and getting to know what their community wanted while operating two other businesses. The Local was born in early 2019 offering a wine bar, craft beers, great food made fresh daily using locally sourced ingredients and even better customer service. Their philosophy is simple: “As great cooking starts with great ingredients, great ingredients starts with great farmers.” Customers can dine on their patio made comfortable with heaters, or they offer carry-out and delivery. www.thelocalotc.com
