The Ferry Building Farmer's Market: It's this gorgeous, magical place, situated directly beside the bay, with fresh food, flowers, cheeses, coffees, oysters... It's no wonder it gets thoroughly packed on the weekends.It's easy to be lazy and prefer to stay in and lounge around, especially on holiday weekends. I'm always far more pleased when we make the decision to get out and explore and enjoy the beautiful places and things right at our fingertips.
The extra nice thing about the Ferry Building? They've built a lovely playground directly across the street, so that when the kids are through smelling the flowers and tasting every fruit and cheese sample, they can run, climb and swing their little hearts out beside city skyscrapers.
Everyone goes home happy. ;)
