hidden views

little gems like this are tucked away just off the street/sidewalk that are easy to miss unless you're looking for them inside entryways and side streets in San Francisco

Fall at the San Francisco Ferry Building Farmers Market


the prettiest pears, local oysters shucked to order, heirloom beans like the gorgeous "tiger beans" on the left from Lonely Mountain Farm, rainbow chard, and then Icelandic poppies by the bucket full and dahlias lingering

the fog and rain are back in San Francisco and it seems that the city often appears to shift into black and white. I start noticing that even my shoes make for a monochromatic scene as I criss cross hills. 

Folsom Street Fair

 Folsom Street Fair is unlike any other street fair in San Francisco or any other city. It's always such an amazing experience as a person that is fascinated by culture and also in love with this city that tries to create a space for everyone. I read about human behavior more than anything else. This event lends itself to photos unique to this event and each year is different as it is a direct reflection of those that attend. I was happy to see the lederhosen fellas back again. Here's another part of San Francisco that makes it a special place to say the least.

Atelier Dion ceramics

After catching up with friends at the Eat Real Festival I headed over to the Atelier Dion Kickstarter kickoff party/sample sale. I picked up the tin can set that I've wanted for a year or two. I love their colored clay cups and the dice above are pretty sweet too. You can help support their kickstarter here. 

thanks Oakland

I started the busy weekend off with the Eat Real Festival on Saturday morning with cheese grits topped with bacon and greens Sugarfoot Grits. Finally got to try a horchata latte and then cooled down with an avocado and kefir lime pop from Fat Face. I kept coming across this THX Oakland stencil, kudos to whoever is behind it.

classy street musicians

There was a small "microhood" or neighborhood festival tonight with discounts or giveaways at local stores. The winner of the evening was Tommaso's since they generously gave out a slice of lasagna with a glass of wine and just around the corner from them on Broadway near Columbus was this fella playing the piano as the world passed by.

Shakespeare at the park and date shakes

 which means even more time outside with long walks across the city with a stop at Loving Cup this time to fill my jar up with coconut rice pudding. I was thrilled to see the Flying Disc Ranch  date farmers at the farmers market after being away for two months while the new season of dates came in. Their dates are amazing and they ship. Walking around the date farm being seeing the cholla blossoms at Joshua Tree followed with the best BBQ dinner and live music at Pioneer Town made for such an amazing day. I'm planning on a date shake for breakfast this week.
