I’ll be here.
San Francisco knows the way to my heart, and it is the Ferry Building. I always look forward to visiting San Francisco, because I make a point to stay near the Ferry Building so I can go and shop, and eat, after work. Bonus: I usually get some extra steps on the Fitbit on my way there!
What is it about this place that I love so much?
- It’s old. It was originally built as a train and ferry station in 1898. This was how you arrived in this great city by the bay. I may not arrive here, but I always end up here.
- I can shop. Appropriately located at the end of Market Street, it is now filled with unique goods and local foods that are truly one of a kind. From artisan olive oil, to hand made clay pots, to heirloom beans, there is no shortage of treasures to be found in this market.
- I can eat. There are lots of little places to grab a snack, some artisan cheese or sausage, or taste some unique wines. There are restaurants if you really want to splurge, but really, I am totally OK with a progressive series of snacks.
- The view. In the shadow of the bay bridge, the view is iconic day or night.
On some days there is a craft market out side, and on others a farmers market. It really is a summation of all things that are important to me. Fresh Food. Great Wine. Creative Cookery. Kitchen Ware. Arts & Crafts. And the Ocean.
There are lots of places like this that I have visited, but not a one I can go back to time and time again. As the saying goes, I left my heart in San Francisco… more specifically, it’s at the Ferry Building.
One thought on “If you need me…”
Lucky YOU! Put me in one of your bags next time. I can take care of myself while you work!
