Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

Some of my best and favorite days in San Francisco have been when I visited the Ferry Plaza on the Embarcadero on days when the Farmers Market is underway – Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
If you get there around lunch time, the place is crowded as heck. It’s a natural magnet for downtown San Francisco office workers who want to grab a quick bite of street food to eat, and to get some fresh veggies for dinner.
I’ve seen the most beautifully colored tomatoes there (see a previous blog post for pictures), and on a recent foray amongst the food booths lining the sidewalk in front of the Ferry Building, I saw some impeccably beautiful citrus:
Lemony Lemons

Orangey Oranges
You don’t find stuff like this on a regular basis  in Hawaii, unfortunately. Ah well, that’s the way it goes.
