Roadside burritos

What’s better than an unexpected roadside find on a road trip? R and I spent time in the Hudson River Valley this summer. We tried to take advantage of as much of the local farms, farmer’s markets and culinary fare (much by graduates of the local Culinary Institute of America) as we could. This involved multiple trips to “pick your own” at Greig Farm and Mead Orchards in Red Hook (near Rhinebeck). On our way to pick peaches, we happened upon a vegetarian burrito stand in a trailer on the side of the road adjacent to the Montgomery Place farm market (9G & 199). Toasted tortillas stuffed with fresh vegetables, rice, beans, guacamole, sour cream and salsa. Were we just really hungry or were these the freshest, most flavorful burritos we have ever had? We will admit the kitschy cute stand only enhanced the experience. A quick Google search revealed that the owners split their time between the Red Hook roadside stand and their café in Mexico (and that we are not the only fans). Definitely worth a stop if you are driving through the area.

Grieg farm seriously has the best blueberries this side of the state of Maine.
Nice photo of the burrito trailer.

Your detailed synopsis & photo sounds great. What a wonderful way to spend the day. I remember the time when Randy was a little guy & we went to the orchard to pick peaches. They were so juicy we had to borrow the farmers hose and wash Randy off as his fingers were stuck together from the peach juice. The burrito sounds awsome. Thanks for sending!

Will definitely try it when I am in the area. Until then, I might just try making the burrito you described. It sounds delicious.

I have lived in the Red Hook area for over 4 years but only just discoverd how good Bubby's Burritos are. Once I had, I made weekly stops to the stand - I can agree with you that the burritos were the freshest and best tasting I have ever had!
