Ferry Market Building Farmer's Market - San Francisco

On my last trip up to Napa, I swung by the Ferry Building during a non-farmer's market day.  I missed out on some fabulousness. Emily from Foodzie recommended that I get to Primavera for their Chilaquiles.  Come on, NACHOS for breakfast? Of course I love this stuff.  It's one of my favorite meals of all time.

I first became aware of Frog Hollow from a friend who I thought was calling it, "Frogolo".  Through a comedy of errors, I finally discovered that it was Frog Hollow, the best fruit ever.  It's about $3.90 a pound at the ferry market but it is the BEST fruit I've ever had.

They served grilled peaches the weekend I was there.  The sweet, juicy nectar from the peach was absolutely amazing.  

I wandered through stall after stall of fresh veggies, cheese, fruits, plants, and mushrooms.  I found a lot of asian veggies here that I can't readily find in my local markets.  It makes it feel so exotic.  It was an amazing smorgasboard of offerings.  I only wish that we had this place in Los Angeles!  

I know I'm a simple person but many different colors and types of radishes are there?  I love the spicy crunchiness of radishes and was sad that I couldn't grab a few bunches to munch on.  Look how beautiful they are!

One of the best parts of the Farmer's Market was getting to see these group of swing dancers dancing around the area right in front of the building.  It was amazing!  People were having such a great time and the spontaneity of the dancing almost made me want to get out there and dance.  But i don't dance.  I sprain ankles by walking.

  1. What great produce you have available. Grilled peaches are the tip-top! I used to grill them with sugar and then grill brie wrapped in grape leaves, cut open the brie and scoop it out onto the peaches. Now that is sublime!

  2. Ooooohhhh...that sounds FANTASTIC! Actually Stephane was the one who first told me about Frog Hollow Farms - these peaches are amazing!!!

  3. The Ferry Building Farmer's Market kicks butt. Only bad thing is it is so crowded on the weekends. But totally worth it. Can't wait to go back.
