Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market: Sights and Bites

The Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market is like a wonderland. Every time I visit, I am in a semi-hyperactive mode because of the gazillion varieties of fresh vegetables, fruits, and artisan cheeses.
The Market is famed for local and organic vendors. Everything in the market, from the bread to chocolates, from milk to fish, from flowers to fruits is by a vendor who has the business not far from the city. A true locavore haven.

Enjoy the picture slideshows below. I didn't get pictures of the raw food vendor, but that is also a mandatory stop you must make while at the market. I ate their raw cheesecake and raw apple pie, OMG! duuper-delicious!

Veggies and Fruits:

Along with the fruits, flowers and veggies, the farmers' market has the most delicious hot chocolate. Old style, thick and surreal:

I'll end the post with my most favorite section of the Ferry Plaza marketplace, the cheese mecca: Cow Girl Creamery. They are an organic dairy from Point Reyes, California.
Taste as much as you want, and don't forget to try their fresh Goat Cheese. If I ever went vegan, their Goat Cheese will still be an exception for me :-)
