The little yellow trailer
On the weekends at the farmers markets in Folsom and Carmichael, there’s a little yellow trailer. It’s called the Healthy Nut Hut, and proprietor Miriam Bailey will make anyone who sidles up to its window an order of nut burgers, barbecue-sauced beet burgers, nut tacos, vegan kabobs or acai bowls. Bailey, who says she’s a lifelong vegetarian, began making nut burgers for her kids because she didn’t like the premade options at the store. Her family encouraged her to take the burgers to the public, and for the past two years, she’s been selling them via the Nut Hut. In addition to the savory menu items (some are vegetarian but can be ordered vegan), Bailey makes vegan cookies, seasonal pumpkin bread and hibiscus flower lemonade. The yellow trailer is at the Historic Folsom Farmers Market Saturdays (8 a.m.-1 p.m., 905 Leidesdorff Street and the Car-michael Park Farmers Market Sundays (9 a.m.-2 p.m., 5750 Grant Avenue).
