based in San Rafael but sold in Marin County farmers markets and stores
around San Francisco). Savory meat and vegetarian empanadas, as well as
Empanadas de Mi Pueblo (a website, www.ebempanadas.com, doesn't seem to be working). All SFoodie knows about this new Berkeley empanada maker is that it has a Facebook page.
El Porteño Empanadas (permanent stalls at 331 Cortland and the Ferry Building; also appears at numerous farmers markets). Serves savory and sweet empanadas with flaky crusts.
Primo's Parrilla (various East
Bay locations, 510-423-3473, Twitter: @vamosprimos). Serves tri-tip and
chicken sandwiches with chimichurri, meat and veggie choripan,
empanadas, and alfajores.

El Majahual (1142 Valencia, 821-7514). OK, so this is mostly a sit-down
Colombian-Salvadoran restaurant, but since it serves Colombian-style
arepas SFoodie figured we'd mention it.
El Perol (2590 Mission, stall 7, 550-8582). Longtime stand in the
Mission Market that sells Peruvian empanadas and tamales as well as pan
con chicharron, a Lima-style pork sandwich, as well as steam-table food
and great alfajores.
