What's Cooking, Aug. 9 

The Super Mercado Fresco is a super fresh market, of course, now open at Geyer Springs and Baseline Road, Little Rock's largest Hispanic neighborhood. This is the place to go if you're preparing authentic Mexican cuisine, and you don't have to speak Spanish to find the wide variety of fruits and vegetables here – signage is in English and Spanish, and will lead you to tomatillos, mangoes, plaintains, cactus, peppers of every hue and more. Looking for octopus? You'll find it in the meat section, along with skirt steak and other specialty cuts. The deli offers homemade tamales, burritos, tacos and other quick meals. There's pan dulce, tres leches cake, Mexican sodas and fruit drinks and other hard to find treats from south of the border. Pinatas make the mood merry. Super Mercado, an Affiliated Foods offshoot, is open daily.
