Marianne and her husband Jim are such sweethearts, and we were chatting nonstop, naturally! We got on like houses on fire and just really enjoyed our day together.

Here are some pictures:

Look! tomatoes!!

We poked about all the stalls outside on the pier and chatted with the farmers and locals, and tourists. It was a beautiful day and great fun. We (as a whole) purchased herb salts, lavender sachets, fresh herbs, pumpkin seed levain, young creamy goat cheese, hydrosols of rose, raw almonds, pate and a smoked pork t-bone from the Fatted Calf in Napa, lemon verbena soda, and sampled about a hundred different delicious things.

After our sumptuous lunch at the SF Seafood Company:

we strolled around the inside of the Ferry building and sampled chocolate and caramel sauces, candy cap mushroom ice cream, local olive oils and shopped for goodies in the various stall inside, such a fun array of stuff. We were headed to the gelato shop (Blackberry Cabernet, campari grapefruit, key lime pie, OMG) you will never guess who I saw... The Mayor! You can't visit SF without saying hello to the Mayor so I chatted him up while Marianne found Jim in the crowd and they posed for pictures.

Don't you love that!

We took our gelato outside to the back of the pier and enjoyed the breeze (balmy!!) and watched the fireboat show off for everyone.

It was wonderful to connect with Marianne and Jim and we were generating ideas left and right for their winery and for jobs for me. I am seriously considering taking up the suggestion for tours of the farmer's market. Thank you Marianne!!

It was hard to say goodbye (sniff sniff) but what a fun day.

Marianne, I am sorry that Capp's Corner was disappointing. I guess everyone has an off night but what a bummer. You and Jim need to come out again and stay for a month this time... that way we can cook some of the things from the farmers market!
