We visited Canino’s on a Friday morning. Parking is easy in the big lot, you just need to watch for all the cars coming and going. Inside the open air building was busy, but not so crazy that I was worried about losing my kids.

In Canino’s you can pay with debit or credit card for purchases over $5.00. Just outside of the main Canino’s building, you will find rows and rows and rows of independent produce vendors. Here you can find very cheap produce but will need to pay with cash.

My kids had a great time at the market, picking out their own groceries. We walked out with bananas, peanuts, oranges, banana chips and corn on the cob for about $7.00.  Afterwards, we made a quick stop at El Bolillo Bakery, making it a great morning.

Instead of “Kid in a candy store”, the saying should be “Kid in El Bolillo Bakery“. This bakery in The Heights is just simply beautiful. The walls are lined with breads and pastries and the smell is amazing.

When you walk in the door, you can pick up a large round pizza pan and tongs. You can then walk around the bight cases of breads to select your favorite items. I was nearly as excited about it as my kids.

El Bolillo Bakery Cakes
I am sure the calorie count is high, but the cost is very reasonable. I purchased two large trays of rolls for under $10.00. This included 8 huge dinner rolls, 2 cookies, 8 pastries and whatever else my kids slipped on the tray.
