After just over a year at Lancaster County Farmers Market, V Empanadas has established itself as a go-to spot for authentic Spanish turnovers. Born in Ecuador and now living in Bryn Mawr, Veronica Fitzgerald makes everything by hand and does her deep-frying on site. Get your empanada stuffed with pork, cheese, veggies, short rib and potato, or Mexican-style chicken. Sides include black beans and rice, queso fresco, plantain chips, and fresh guacamole. Feeling brave? Try the “V” spicy sauce. Also on the menu: Mexican tamales in five flavors—and there’s even a dulce de leche (creamy caramel) empanada for dessert. Catering is available. Lancaster County Farmers Market, 389 Lancaster Ave., Wayne, (201) 927-4970, website.

More Nibbles: For 20 years in Berwyn, Nectar has been a standard-bearer for culinary excellence on the Main Line. So it’s no surprise that Kenny Huang, its executive chef, was recently honored by the Philadelphia chapter of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, the oldest and largest food and wine society in the world, for his kitchen prowess. Sadly, Downingtown’s Amani’s BYOB and its sister cocktail bar, Amani’s North, have been forced to close. According to owners Jonathan and Jeanine Amann, the pandemic, flood damage from Hurricane Ida and mounting operating costs all took their toll on the beloved dining spot.
