Bon Marché

Living in San Francisco, we are definitely spoiled by all the incredible farmer's markets that sprout up every weekend. Most Saturdays, we go to our local farmer's market in Noe Valley, but last weekend we decided to mix it up a bit and check out the Alemany Farmer's Market, which is a 5-10 minute drive from where we live. We were amazed and overwhelmed by the the amount of awesome produce and flowers for sale, and the prices were cheap, cheap cheap! We stocked up on cherries, tomatoes, strawberries, basil, roses... and can't wait to go back next weekend for more.

Flowers galore!

Gigantic celery!

Fruits!

Greens!

They had sooo many different types of mushrooms that we couldn't decide... maybe next week we'll get some.

A half-flat of strawberries that we brought home on the scooter and made into yummy jam later that day.

Ok, this is getting strange. I just came to your blog via poppytalk, and scrolled through some of your entries. We have a lot of post topics in common. Very nice. I did a thing about the Union Square Green Market (NYC) recently. Anyway, I like your blog.
