On the dark city streets of Coruscant, street-side food stalls serve affordable, fast fare to residents of all types. Given the diversity of species inhabiting the planet, the shelves offer a wide variety of dishes to suit any palate.

Tatooine food market

Local farmers and produce vendors sell their harvests directly to residents at the daily Mos Espa market. Hardworking sellers spend long days under the hot suns and only close up shop when sandstorms approach.

5. Condiments

Chadian and ubese dressings, condiments for Star Wars food

Sometimes a dish could benefit from a little extra flavour, or others might need the flavour blotted out altogether. Condiments such as colourful Chadian and Ubese dressings are popular for making food more appetizing.

6. Food on the go

On peacekeeping missions across the galaxy, you never know where your next meal is coming from. Members of the Jedi Order often carry energy capsules on their utility belts. Each contains tiny pellets with enough energy to sustain a Jedi on distant planets and long space journeys.
