Partnership that Works

A garden-fresh partnership in San Diego

In recent years, Delaware North Sportservice’s culinary team at Petco Park has relied on the ballpark’s in-house garden to create menu items with truly local flavor for San Diego Padres fans.

The gardening effort – led by the Padres and incorporated into the ballpark’s menu by Delaware North, the team’s food, beverage and retail partner – was recently featured in an online story by Sports Illustrated.

“The peppers have even drawn the interest from concessionaire Delaware North’s head chef, who has taken some of them and worked them into ballpark dishes,” the article said.

“The Padres’ peppers – along with the tomatoes grown under the batter’s eye – have given life to vats of salsa for new dishes, such as the sweet and spicy bullpen relish for a burger or the strikeout salsa that topped a pork belly taco,” the article continued.
