SF Ferry Building

Its taken us a little while but we finally got to sorting out the photos from our San Francisco trip. This particular batch of photos is from our quick visit to the legendary Ferry Building - the Bay Area's vibrant gathering of local farmers, artisan producers, and independently owned and operated food businesses located along the Embarcadero at the foot of Market Street.

Far West Fungi - the specialized mushroom shop where you can pick up fresh seasonal truffles and of course regular mushrooms as well.

Boccalone Salumeria features more than 20 varieties of their handmade cured meats, batched right across the bay in Oakland.

Stonehouse California Olive Oil - the name pretty much says it all, but Stonehouse is best known for its citrus flavored oils.

The Ferry Building is the only place in the Bay Area where you can get a full selection of Acme's artisan breads.

Are you hungry yet? I'm pairing these photos on purpose! Cowgirl Creamery Artisan Cheese is a European style cheese shop is right smack in the middle of the Ferry Building.

The Frog Hollow Farm sells a variety of farm fresh organic seasonal fruits, farm made fruit preserve, and assorted pastries.

Obviously, we had to stop by and grab a bite at one of the many eateries at the Ferry Building, so being the meat lover that I am, I went straight to Prather Ranch Meat Co. 

I got the Smoked Beef sandwich ($10) that the manager recommended. The sandwich came on a rustic roll with thinly sliced smoked Prather Ranch Beef, griddled onions, provolone & horseradish sauce.

The sandwich was just what I needed after a long day of staring at delicious food. The bread was nice and soft and the meat was definitely flavorful and tender. I wish there was a bit more horseradish, but I just like a kick to my food.

Anyway, I definitely recommend you take the trip out to the Ferry Building next time you're in the area.
