Saturday Farmer’s Market

Tulips at the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market, San Francisco

It’s spring and the endless buckets of tulips are gorgeous at the Ferry Building farmer’s market.  They truly brighten the day.   I just love buying my groceries from these vendors– don’t forget your reusable bag!  Although most of the groceries are relatively expensive, there are a few things that I can’t pass up.  My spring favorites are fresh heads of romaine lettuce for $2 and the sweet and crispy Asian pears for $3.    After I pick up my groceries, I’m ready for lunch.  Usually what sounds best is a Gott’s Roadside burger and milkshake.  But this time I tried something new.  I found myself standing in what seemed like the longest line (after the women’s bathroom).  Roli Roti, located on the east side of the Ferry Building, had cooked up a scent that made my mouth water.  I was nearly drooling as I watched their meat cook while the juice drips onto their roasted potatoes.  For $9.50, I had plenty enough food that really filled my stomach with happiness.  The boneless pork roast sandwich is really fatty but so juicy and tender.  I recommend that the sandwich is shared between two people.  The line moved quickly and to say the least, it was well worth the wait.

I also decided to try the Drinkwell Softers lemon flavored sparkling water.  I was enticed by the cute bottle but not as thrilled about the taste.  I am not a fan of carbonated drinks so it wasn’t a surprise that I didn’t fall in love.  Regardless it was very refreshing on this warm day.

The Farmer’s Market on Saturday’s exemplifies the beautiful community that San Francisco shares.  Although I was not born and raised here, I love that locals and tourists alike share this occasion.

Love,

Your Honolulu Sweetheart
