Farmers Market Report: Ferry Plaza

DSC_0005

When hubby and I arrived in San Francisco, the first place we absolutely had to check out was the legendary Ferry Building.  Fortunately, it was less than a 10-minute walk from our hotel, and we were lucky enough to arrive on a day when the farmers market was open – score!  We picked up Peet’s Coffee, Cowgirl Creamery cheese, and sourdough from the Acme Bread Company for lunch.  Since we were staying in a hotel, we didn’t buy any fruits, other than a couple of organic apples for lunch, but I did manage to get some pictures of all that fresh California produce taunting me…

Checking out the farmers market was a perfect way to begin our vacation!  I don’t usually get the opportunity to eat fabulous California fruits without the carbon footprint, so this was quite a treat.  Stay tuned for more foodie (and non-foodie) sites in San Francisco, restaurant profiles, and other epicurean adventures!  We are now in the wine country and will have lots more to share when we get back…
