San Francisco Market Report: Ferry Building Farmer's Market

Here's a roundup of what's fresh at the Ferry Building Farmer's Market in San Francisco this week! The photo above shows a small sampling of our haul. Clockwise from top: baby dandelion greens, dried heirloom tomatoes, and nettles.

NEW ARRIVALS:
We saw the first crops of California strawberries, nettles, fresh-cut lilacs, chioggia beets, fava beans, and fiddlehead ferns.

IN SEASON:
Greens are all over the place! Salad greens of all kinds (mizuna, dandelion, baby spinach), asparagus, fingerling potatoes, fennel, and lots of baby vegetables.

GOING OUT OF SEASON:
Gala and Pink Lady apples, Meyer lemons, parsnips.

OTHERS:
Many farmers are selling last year's peppers, heirloom tomatoes, and fruits in dried form - what a great idea. We grabbed three packs of dried heirloom tomatoes and have been snacking on them in the office. We also saw a lot of honey, but it was quite pricey at $12 per jar.
