Organic apples at the markets
Yesterday I visited San Francisco’s Ferry Building markets. They are right on the water, in the building that was originally the ferry terminal. The building is full of local artisan producers of everything from wine and cheese to vegan donuts. Because it is a predominately taste/visual experience, I’ve gone for more of a visual diary of the day I spent eating my way around the building. Plus, on Saturdays, Tuesday and some Thursdays there is a farmers’ market which surrounds the building with more fresh produce stalls. I hope you enjoy – I sure did!
A great selection of cheese at Cowgirl Creamery
