Sat. Embarcadero Farmers Market-visit before it's nothing

Duke Dee | Mar 16, 2002 10:00 PM

Gen Xers and aging Yuppies w/ kids overrun this Satur-
day morning event on the waterfront,It is an unusually friendly,homogenous and mingly crowd.Overheard snatches
of conversation " Is this my double non fat mocha?...
Get a skirt steak and grate some kale...I usually order the spinach samosa"
The big waits were for Zuckerman Farms beer battered deep fat fried asparagus spears ($4).Sneaking into the kitchen, I spot warm 16 oz. cans of Keystone Light. Is
this a flavour secret?
This Saturday was a blue sky, mid-60's morning.At the exit, I queried the lavender lady about the crowds-
"depends on the weather. real busy in the winter.
Summertime-this place is nothing."
