Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, San Francisco
A farmers market is set up at Ferry Plaza on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday each week. Saturday is the biggest day at the market because stalls are set up along the side and back of the building, rather than just the front. The additional stalls also include several food trucks, which come out in smaller numbers on Tuesday and Thursday.
If we lived in San Francisco, we could easily cook as vegetarians at home and always have a bouquet of gorgeous locally grown flowers. I think these pictures speak for themselves.
August 27 was the last day for Tell Tale Preserve until they find a new partner. I went a little nuts and bought a bacon pop-tart, 2 rebels within, and a brownie with salted caramel and marcona almonds.
I got a Korean beef taco from Namu. It's described as a ssam style "taco," with seasoned rice, kalbi short ribs, daikon and kimchee salsa, kimchee remoulade, housemade teriyaki folded into japanese and
korean toasted seaweeds. Meanwhile next to Namu was 4505 Meats. A ordered a bacon maple sausage sandwich with aged gruyere, over easy egg and peppercress on a buttery housemade griddled bun.
Do you see these gorgeous dahlias and zinnias?!? I know I am swooning. We returned to the market on Tuesday morning before our afternoon flight. A picked out two delicious sandwiches from Acme Bread: the salami and potato pesto to eat on our way home to Chicago.
