After stuffing ourselves with Harbor Village civil war dim sum my husband, son and I waddled off to our first Ferry Market visit.
Sonofjenniferfishwilson was hungry (after all those chicken feet?!) and ordered Hayes Street Grills scrambled eggs and Hobb bacon (just as good as previous posts said) on baguette.
Mrfishwilson was thirsty and raved about the lime juice next door; son and I preferred watermelon juice.
I left son and husband on the grass and armed with Chowhound posts from Tida, dixieday, Stanley Stephan, Chibi and others I put together The Perfect Post Dim Sum Ferry Market Summer Meal. (BTW I gave the vendors my copy of the posts about their waresthey were most appreciative and promised to visit Chowhound).
*Heirloom tomatoes from Eatwell Farm: it was great to be able to taste before buying. Our new favorites are pineapple and tangerine.
*Fresh mozzarella di bufala from Cow Girl Creamery rec by Stanley Stephan
*Grilled wild salmon
*Roasted German Butter Ball Potatoes from Spring Hill Potatoes
*Jellied fruit candies from Michael Recchiuti
We were too late for Miette macaroons rec by Tida. (Miette will have storefront on 40th in Oakland soon).
Happy Quail loved chibi and Stanleys Miyoga posts. I bought pimientos de Padron rec by MrTidalooking forward to those tomorrowvendor rec. sauté in olive oil until skin blisters, sprinkle w/ Kosher salt and eat while warm; Tida refers to them as Culinary Roulette since 1 out of 5 are fiery hot.
Ive been a very savvy food shopper for years. But my market trip would not have been as successful without posts of fellow Chowhounders. Thanks to all for your contributions to our dinner.
Be sure and come to the Chowhound picnic so I can thank you in person.
