Farmers' Market Day at the Ferry Building

We went back to the Ferry Building on a Farmers' Market day. I think no commentary is necessary. Our Memphis downtown farmers' market is wonderful, but still....

More San Francisco Ferry Building!

They meant it when they said "salted pig parts." All kinds of salami, salumi, hams, prosciutto. Most sounded good. There was blood sausage...Although I think of myself as an adventurous eater, there are some things I just can't bring myself to eat.

Cowgirl Creamery had a booth. We've carried a few of their cheeses off and on, both at Mantia's and now at Lucchesi's but their display and samples made me want to bring in every single one of them!

Inside the San Francisco Ferry Building

I'm a little late in posting some of the amusing things we did and saw on our honeymoom last month. We wandered through the ferry building as we were waiting for a ferry to Sausalito, on a day that wasn't a farmers' market day. Another post will show great things we saw when we went back another day!
The seafood shop had these wonderful looking raw oysters. You could buy a few dozen to take home to share with friends, or just buy a couple to slurp down with lemon or cocktail sauce as you shop.
You just don't see fresh crabs in a tank at the local Memphis Kroger store...or almost anywhere else in Memphis (other than a couple of good Oriental markets far from my house) for that matter!
