Farmers Markets

Ciaohound (Bob Savelli) | Jun 2, 200201:29 PM

Last evening my experienced farmers markets friends read and discussed "Stanley Stephan's" Ferry Farmers Market previous review.

Naturally, they agreed, disagreed, and had their own favorite vendors. They both came to the conclusion that the while the quality is high, the prices tend to reflect the San Francisco area and more affluent clientelle.

Their recommendations were to try the South San Francisco Saturday market. This is on South Orange Boulevard of El Camino. The vendors are different from the Ferry Farmers Market. They were described as "more farmer, less commercial." Excellent prices, sometimes about half of the cost.

Also highly recommended is the Serramonte (Daly City) Farmers Market on Thursday mornings. Here, a lot of the same vendors appear from the Ferry Farmers Market, but the prices have been reduced somewhat. One set of our friends buy all their fresh fish from one vendor here, as well as fruit and vegetables.

Just thought I'd pass on some other alternatives to the Ferry Farmers Market which I can't wait to try.
