The Egg Roll Lady on Martha’s Vineyard

There’s nothing like Martha’s Vineyard in the Fall. Crowds have since dispersed after Labor Day, and the crisp fall air makes for a perfect day to visit the Saturday West Tisbury Farmer’s Market. It’s a wonderfully colorful scene of fresh flowers, tangy-sweet Limeade coolers, seasonal fruits and vegetables, homemade jams and breads. There is even an Alpaca stall where you can buy the softest scarves, hats and mittens. Alpaca Stall For a pretty penny, you can even buy an entire alpaca (or 3 for that matter as they do come in herds).

But why are we really here? My amazing friend Tonya swears they sell the best Egg Rolls!

The “Egg Roll Lady” is Thi Khen Tran, a Vietnamese immigrant who started selling lettuce and even smoked bluefish mousse in her early days at the market. Her kids loved her egg rolls so much they convinced her to start selling them. Now people return year after year just to buy her famous egg rolls, at $5 each for either hot vegetarian or Vietnamese.

I would have never believed that a fresh farmer’s market would have to-die-for egg rolls, but after one bite, I was a believer.

Now I’m thinking it would taste good with the homemade jalapeño jelly I bought there too!
