My final full day in San Fran. It’s market day!!
Made way to the Ferry Building Marketplace.
At this market you will find local farmers showing off their crops, little shops selling specialty gourmet items and best of all, it is a food haven!!
The Ferry Building Marketplace is located along the Embarcadero at the foot of Market Street. It is the center of a transit hub that connects all of San Francisco’s neighborhoods and the surrounding bay communities.
Fresh vegetables and flowers:
Food vendors waiting for the lunch time rush:
Inside the ferry building was light and airy. Having arrived early, the crowd was still thin, which I was thankful for.
Tasty salted pig parts!?
Beef pot pies from here:
And of course there was dessert from Miette. Ice cream sandwich as recommended by a local. Salted chocolate in a wafer cookie.
A trip to San Fran is not complete until you visit Boudin Bakery and have their clam chowder in their famous sourdough bread bowl.
Later in the evening opted for the Croque Monsieur sandwich at the Food Emporium. A mixture of melted cheeses, ham and bechamel sauce. Not one of my best choices I will admit.
But redemption was found in eating one of these cream puffs from Beard Papa. Chocolate filled cream puff. I should have also ordered a vanilla filled cream puff too!
My San Francisco trip is officially over and I have had a terrific time exploring its streets – both uphill and down. Even though the fog rolled in on my Golden Gate Bridge visit day, it did not dampen my spirits. I was well fed and I look forward to coming back again someday. =)
