San Francisco Ferry Building Marketplace

Apparently, all the cool kids are doing it. Visiting the San Francisco Ferry Building Marketplace, or at least picking up the new cookbook by the fantastically witty Peggy Knickerbocker and ground-breaking photographer Christopher Hirsheimer. I was lucky enough to have the time to take a quick jaunt down to the Bay area to see it for myself, and attend a great talk on The Art of The Cookbook (which I wrote up for Well Fed Network’s Food Bound).

Although the actual farmer’s market hadn’t started yet when I was there (I missed it by just a couple of days), there was still plenty to drool over… quaint and sinful treats at Miette, huge rounds of Neal’s Yard cheeses at Cowgirl Creamery, delicate convolutions of fresh morels, or hearty sopa de albondigas (Mexican pork and beef meatball soup) at Mijita’s, a perfectly poured frond on my latte at Frog Hollow Farm… the opportunities were endless, and I simply didn’t have enough hours, or meals, in my trip. It will definitely be on my list to go again, next time I’m in town and if you find yourself in San Francisco, be sure not to miss it.

Here are a few of the sites I managed to capture:
