Ferry Building in Summer
If you're lacking inspiration, a visit to the Ferry Building Farmer's Market might amp you up. I mean, seriously, this place was out of control last Saturday (Heather and Alex's first full day of their visit). The bounty of specialty items almost made me entirely ignore the stone fruit I dream of all other months of the year.
Luckily, I did get my green on - the Green Gulch Farm stand is conveniently located at the entrance, so I couldn't miss their produce. They might be my favorite of all the stands, but, of course, I am biased because I've walked the grounds of their farm and meditated on their land, so ya, I'm biased...
Green gulch greens!
A basket of tamales - what's not to like?
I didn't buy the Juniper Ridge sachets, but I could have gone home with everything they had to offer.
Like their tea...
...or their sage. Note: I did buy their Pinon incense. Last night was the first night I burned it and it made my whole apartment smell like Big Sur. I'm obsessed!
Tell Tale Preserves.
Beautiful Heath, as always.
My annual summer lavender bunch! It always feels like a ritual when I swap out my faded bunch for a fresh and fragrant one.
These adorable kids, transfixed - and holding hands. Love at the Ferry Building. We all experience it.
