Umm, can you say YESSSSSSSSSS
Start it up: July 2 is a red letter date for the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. It marks the premiere of a new permanent Thursday market that will focus on sustainable street food. The market will be open 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on the south side of the Ferry Building in San Francisco.
The theme is "sustainable street food meets the best local produce," says spokeswoman Christine Farren of CUESA, the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture, which operates the Ferry Plaza markets.
There will be a handful of farm stands, including Dirty Girl and Swanton Berry Farm, along with food trucks and carts that will use ingredients from market vendors. Prepared food will come from Ryan Farr's 4505 Meats, Laiola, Pizza Politana, RoliRoti and Cap'n Mike's.
This makes me really happy. You know where I'll be on Thursdays!
Also, as a brief update to the street food craze, I checked out the creme brulee cart, and it's actually really good! I was surprised that the burly street merchant could achieve such delicate, smooth texture ha. His broham, however, was super slow and took like 30 min to serve up 5 plates of curry. I will have to go back another time. You can also add Little Skillet to the list! The French guy with the frog legs doesn't appeal to me though. French take-out is nothing new, anyway.
