Thistle Meats of Petaluma started selling at the Saturday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Feb 28, its one-year anniversary. I haven't caught them in the City yet, but I was in the store that first afternoon to get the breathless and excited account of how the first appearance went.
I was in the shop again on Good Friday for an update and to buy things for my own Easter meal. Apparently fresh rabbit from Santa Rosa's Jones family farm and the rabbit crepinettes have been among the top sellers at Ferry Plaza. Have any San Francisco 'hounds checked out the stand?
Sampling at the shop, the rabbit rillettes were a bit too bland for my taste. The rabbit terrine studded with pistachios and a bit more highly seasoned was on my Easter table. And my house guests had rabbit crepinettes for breakfast.
