Farmer’s Market

It’s a little rainy here today, and a little snowy and icy in other places so I thought I’d share some pictures from the warmer days (or just last week in SF).

The Ferry Building is a SF icon, she sits at the aquatic entrance to the city, right next to the Bay Bridge (remember the lights) and is a welcome sight to all. Not only is the Ferry Building a huge commuting center for the city by the bay, it’s also home to some of the coolest little shops and restaurants, as well as a pretty famous farmers market (rated one of the top farmers markets in the nation).

The market is a popular tourist attraction but it’s also full of locals doing their weekly grocery shopping. Out front are all the veggies and fruits and daily shopping needs.

They have local honeys (good for allergies) and huge baskets of fresh flowers.

Out back is where you get the good stuff. There are food stalls and food trucks full of amazing snacks. We stopped at Craftsman and Wolves for and egg muffin – to. die. for. Amazing bacon, cheddar chive muffin holding a perfectly cooked soft boiled egg!

We also stopped at Miette for a macaroon, because it was Saturday and why not have one, or three for breakfast?

As you wander down the aisles of tents and food stalls you are greeted by all the fresh colors and friendly sounds of local growers and sellers and buyers. Everyone is smiling in the sunshine buying their bread for the week or their hummus for their dinner party. It makes for a perfect start to a sunny Saturday morning.

  1. I echo the other comment. That egg muffin looks amazing. Deceiving in appearance too! You think you’ve got a regular ‘ol muffin, but then you take a bite and BAM! EGG! 😛
