The Original Farmers Market’s 85th Anniversary is in July and Bob’s Coffee & Doughnuts is a staple of the market’s history. Bob Tusquellas has been working at the market since he was 12 years old. He bought his stall in 1970 and to this day can be found behind the counter serving up unique flavors like the blueberry cake, pumpkin maple and the classic apple fritter.
One of his many secrets to success is that he keeps his famous recipes in a safe. The second is his taste-test team, which includes his wife, daughter, granddaughter and himself. When he has a new flavor, they all have to like it (if even one of them doesn’t, it won’t make the cut). Finally, there are no shortcuts at Bob’s. The doughnut makers arrive at 4 a.m. to start their day, using all-natural yeast. To celebrate National Doughnut day on Friday, for every six buttermilk donuts purchased, he’ll be giving one away free.
