We went to the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market on Saturday and summer is in full swing here in San Francisco. Berries, stone fruits, and tomatoes have arrived!The Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market
is held on Tuesdays from 10 AM - 2 PM and Saturdays from 8 AM - 2 PM. It's at a great location right on the edge of the San Francisco Bay and accessible to public transportation.
There's a large number of vendors there selling everything from produce to flowers, prepared foods to bread, fish, meat, soup bones, poultry, and cheeses. It tends to be a little on the expensive side, but even if you don't buy anything, the eye candy is wonderful, and we always have fun browsing - we often find interesting food items that we've never heard of before.
Before doing our browsing and picture-taking, we had a nice breakfast of lavender hot tea and a breakfast pizza made with ricotta, fresh cherries, and sage from one of the market vendors.
We hope you enjoy these wonderful photos.
