Last Saturday Sean and I went into San Fransisco to explore the Ferry Building’s Farmer’s Market, we have been talking about it for about a month now so I was really excited to finally check it out. I first discovered the farmer’s market and wanted to go after seeing Julia Engel’s instagram post where she went and posted a photo of a giant hydrangea cart. So my desire to go to the farmers market on the quest to find the perfect hydrangeas was fueled. It was another perfect day in the city at 64 degrees which in the summer this is perfect in San Fransisco; warm yet not feeling like you are about to die of a heat stroke, the beautiful weather made for some really great shots with my DSLR. As soon as I looked through the shots when I got home I was so excited to share them with you.
Sean and I ended up eating lunch at the San Fransisco Fish Market. I got a lobster roll and it was glorious. Let me tell you, it was stuffed with lobster (duh) with minimum bread and it did not disappoint. After eating lunch we continued to stroll around, while I was constantly taking photos, continuing our search for the hydrangea cart as we did not find it before lunch.
There were so many tents set up and it smelled amazing; an aroma of delicious food and beautiful flowers filled the crowded area. We ended up purchasing some amazing brie cheese from a local seller that we had later that day and discovered a Cheese Festival was a thing in September. AKA Sean and I will 100% be attending and I will definitely share that on the blog (you’re welcome).
While I couldn’t find the amazing hydrangea cart (BOOO) I ended up purchasing lavender strands and man did these smell amazing. I couldn’t be happier with them since I’m pretty much obsessed with lavender (hello the honey lavender ice cream from Salt & Straw is the best thing I’ve ever ate). They also made a cool prop for some blog photos you would have seen on Monday which I’ll link the post here if you haven’t checked that out yet.
I had a really awesome morning/early afternoon with Sean exploring this farmers market and I definitely want to go again…. not just for the cheese but to continue my search for the hydrangea cart. I mean I’m going to the city again at noon to set up my art for my show later that night so I might just go into the city a little early to explore the farmer’s market. We’ll see but regardless I’m going again, do you love farmer’s markets? Let me know in the comments!
