We arrived at the Ferry Building quickly and were immediately greeted with various stands; selling everything from handmade jewelry, home decor, and apparel. The farmers market at the Ferry Building is held every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Saturdays are the busiest and we were glad we were able to catch it.
We bought a couple of t-shirts from this stand. These were our official San Francisco souvenirs :)
A stand selling local honey. We bought their San Francisco blend.
Eatwell Farm’s Drinkwell Softers. They were Lacto-Fermented sodas with living probiotics. We bought a bottle of the Strawberry with Rose Geranium.
The longest line outside was for Blue Bottle Coffee Company. The weather was a little muggy, so we decided a cup of their New Orleans style iced coffee would hit the spot. We also bought a pound of their Giant Steps, which is their blend of dark organic coffee.
Ahh it was smooth and delicious.
When we walked inside the building, we saw another line for the Blue Bottle Coffee Company. San Franciscans sure love their coffee.
We’ve seen Ciao Bella’s Gelatos sold in supermarkets here in Los Angeles, but have never seen an actual store. We wanted to buy something but it was a little early for us to get sorbet.
Miette‘s cookies looked so good. It was hard not to buy everything.
Fresh mushrooms from Far West Fungi.
Pepples Organic Donuts. We’ve never tried vegan donuts before so of course we had to buy one. You know… so I could write about it on the blog… *wink
Their Salted Caramel doughnut was delicious. It was soft, moist, but a bit denser than what you would normally expect from an average donut. It was satisfying and went very well with our Blue Bottle coffee.
We also bought a jar of Hey Boo’s Coconut Jam. Tasted like the smoothest, sweetest, and milkiest coconut, with the texture of lemon curd.
After walking around for about 3 hours, we headed towards Chinatown. Look at how busy it got during lunchtime.
As we were walking towards the cable car stop, we noticed a bunch of naked bicyclists just hanging out. We chatted with some nearby police and they told us that the group was promoting the freedom to bike nude in the city. Oh San Francisco… you so crazy :D
