At the Prather Ranch stand at the Ferry Building farmer’s market, you can get big, fluffy buttermilk pancakes, topped with whiskey-laced maple syrup, served alongside a richly flavored sausage made from heritage pork. For $7 it’s enough food to feed two chowhounds. Really. The pancakes are tender and slightly tangy, some of the best Melanie Wong has had in a long time. And the sausage is satisfying and juicy.
These are the people who brought you pork from pigs fed on organic hops. They would not do you wrong.
