Went with a friend today to the Ferry Building Farmer's Market and Market. Many wonderful things there, including some tasty eats (free samples and more) although there were too many people. That overcrowded feeling did hit a couple times, most notably in the Surly Table store. I relaxed some after we had a softshell crab sandwich (delicious) with a nice sit-down at the San Francisco Fish Co.

They have a "Veggie Valet" for produce bags, for visiting the market. I was lucky, lucky, lucky in that I got mine back after closing. Not only did the bag's pocket contain my BART ticket and work badge (oops), it would have been a shame to lose that tasty cheese I got, even if I had the berry turnover from Healdsburg's Downtown Bakery and Creamery (one of my mandatory stops on a visit wine-tasting in Sonoma).

I was pleased to note that non-food artisans seem to be setting up shop down there - the more this gets like Portland's utterly delightful Saturday Market, the better as far as I am concerned.

I'd like to go back to the Market some time when the FM is not going on to avoid some of the crowds.

I'd be into a trip to the Market sometime. Maybe after this week (finals).

I love the Farmer's Market and would love to make it a threesome. The best way to go is to drive to the West Oakland BART station and park and take the 10 minute ride into the Embarcadero Station.

Some of the stand up and walk around cuisine is delightful.
