Morning at the Ferry Plaza Marketplace - San Fran


It was Saturday morning in San Francisco and the only place to be was the Farmer's Market at the Ferry Plaza Marketplace.  Lots of fantastic foods (and vendors eager to let you sample) and of course, plenty of great photo ops! 

 
So many different types of mushrooms!
 
Tons of sweet treats from Miette
 
Who can resist salty pig parts (especially meat cones) from Boccalone
 
Olive oil and vinegar tastes from Stonehouse California Olive Oil Company.


Fine chocolates (and a hazelnut sample!) from Recchiuti Confections.

So many beautiful baked goods from Frog Hollow Farms.
 
You can't miss this place - just head towards the wonderful aroma from this counter.

Lots of colorful peppers...


 
Loved these cute flower animals!
 
These tiny radishes were beautiful.
 
More and more samples!
 
Lots of fresh greens...
 
Pomegranate seeds
 
Brussels Sprouts
 
Nothing like freshly cut wild flowers!
 
Fresh seafood from Hog Island Oyster Co.
 
Walking around the Ferry Plaza Marketplace brought back such fond memories for me.  The last time we both were in San Francisco, it was our honeymoon and we kept coming back here (even just before our flight home!)

  3. The Ferry Building's farmer's market is my favorite one in the states! I can't believe how large those pomegranate seeds were, it must have been very good! Fungi Far West is the best!
