Featured today is the Tumbleweed Burger, served at the Boondocks tent at the Santee Farmers Market each week. The Tumbleweed Burger has a 7 oz. juicy patty, cheddar cheese, bacon and BBQ sauce.
They dish up an American fare- burgers with a slew of toppings ($7-$10), chowder and chili ($5 cup, $8 bowl), sandwiches, hot dogs and more, depending on the day.
Other burger choices include the Bumpkn, Barn Burner and the Rustler.

Hailing from Lakeside, this fifth generation ranch focuses on creating organic jams, chutneys, relishes and , with a recent addition to their lineup- the six hottest chili peppers in the world, including the hottest of the hot, the specially engineered Scorpion Pepper.
