Karen Taylor started selling Primavera tamales at the Berkeley Farmers Market in 1992. The organic farmers she met there still supply produce for her now iconic tamales. Today, Primavera employs a team of 30 who bring their own expertise and regional recipes to the kitchen. Primavera produces handmade tamales and tortilla chips for almost 300 stores, and for the San Francisco Ferry Plaza farmers market where they serve a regional Mexican menu every Saturday.
