We’ll be back to Africa tomorrow, but I was at the Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Market in San Francisco this morning and saw this display at Capay Organic.  Orange and red cherry tomatoes.  Black mission figs.  And flower centerpiece.  One of the many reasons I love the Bay Area.


These are at the Fort Mason farmers’ market. Not my usual market, but nice. And while these look like purple Padrons, the nice lady warned me that they pack a punch more like a habanero.


Think the person running the market had a good laugh about the layout?


The team behind Boulette’s Larder has been hard at work transforming it.  And now it has re-opened as Bouli Bar.  Well, around the corner from the old location which will re-open to in a different form.  Love the lights.

A little lemon and butter and you're doneThe Jumbos are back at Zuckerman’s stall at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

And by Jumbos, I mean the plump and delicious asparagus that are my marker of spring. They’re back. And we’re in line early. You should be too.

Palm, woven by nature
Today at the Ferry Plaza, beautiful salmon, peaches, plums, nectarines, the last blueberries of the season, mint, peppers and the ever faithful date vendor. One of the coolest displays, assembled completely by nature. Amazing ripply patters. Intricately woven fibers. And no fingers involved.
