Saw somebody eating a great looking tamale, corn husk and all, and asked her where she got it. She said there's a farmer's market on Lee Hwy near allergy clinic and and in the farmer's market there is a Hispanic lady who sells them. She said they are about $1.50 -- very reasonable. This person gave me a plastic spoon and allowed me to sample the tamale. Delicious!

WK, if it's the one I'm thinking about it use to be a fairly sizable produce stand.
JiT "Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone's lifestyle, you must fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means that you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don't have to compromise convictions to be compassionate." ~Rick Warren
I buy tamales from the lady outside the Mexican grocery at the intersection of Lee Highway/Airport Road/Nelson Road (next to Panni Cleaners). She sells them for $1 each (chicken or beef, mild or spicy) from a cooler in the back of her car. She's only there Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Inside the store is a restaurant with a limited menu as well as a fresh butcher shop, seafood shop (huge whole shrimp), and LOTS of produce.
