San Francisco, Part 2

More photos of the marketplace (above). While Ken scouted out the meat market, I visited Miette Bakery ( (see two pictures above). Everything was picture-perfect! I purchased a small bag of bite-sized peanut butter cookies and two mini scones, one orange-chocolate and one cream fraiche. By the time I tried the scones the following day, they were slightly hard, but the cookies kept well and served as great snacks when we were stranded in the Denver airport two nights later!

The marketplace was a culinary heaven, with ingredients, gear, and foods to satisfy even the most particular foodies. San Francisco cooks are lucky to have such a great marketplace! If you're ever in the San Francisco area, it is worth your time to stop at the Ferry Building, even if you're not a cook!

In addition to Miette, favorite merchants included:
Scharffen Berger Chocolates
Ferry Plaza Wine Merchants
Cowgirl Creamery

We finished our Ferry Building tour in time to catch part of a San Francisco Giants baseball game at AT&T Park. It is a relatively new stadium built right on the bay - our upper level seats came with a fantastic view!
