Market correspondent Gillian Ferguson catches up with Michelle Lainez of the Vamanos Truck, which is handing out mini bean and cheese burritos on Election Day for everyone who comes between 7 a.m. - 2 p.m. with their “I Voted” sticker. To create texture, she is using whole beans from Milliken Family Farms and a half mash, Tehachapi Heritage Grain Project sonora tortillas, and American cheese. The truck is parked in front of Alana’s Coffee Roasters in Mar Vista. Next, Lori Heal from Two Bean in a Pod describes the lifecycle of a bean.
