San Francisco Ferry Pier Farmer's Market

I love Farmer's Markets of all kinds, but my personal "original" market is the one in San Francisco behind the Ferry Building - the one that first introduced me to the whole concept of a farmer's market. We went there this weekend and enjoyed a beautiful day. Here are just a few of the sights we saw:

Heirloom tomatoes - dozens of varieties for our sampling

Prune plums, figs, more cherry tomatoes,
even a peacotum (peach-apricot-plum hybrid), not pictured

English peas and fava beans

Fresh cut flowers including unbelievable colorful hydrangeas

Cute dogs everywhere! Random fact:
There are more dogs in San Francisco than children.

Chilaquiles from the Primavera Mexican Stand. I had to try these scrambled eggs and homemade tortilla chips topped with a delicious spicy sauce. It was delicious!
Nothing captures the best of the season like your local Farmer's Market. What's your favorite thing in season at the moment?

  1. I'm all over tomatoes, corn, and zucchini lately. Primavera is so good! I want that plate for dinner. And I believe you are correct about the dogs.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
