San Francisco Ferry Building

This past Saturday was the first Saturday that I've been off all day in months, & it was perfect!  I slept in for a bit, & then had big plans for the day.  We still hadn't been to the Farmers Market in San Francisco, so that was our first stop.

The farmers market is right on the water by the Bay Bridge...great food & beautiful view!

Once the farmers market closed, we explored the Ferry Building.  

I don't know how we hadn't been here before.  I loved that this part of the city wasn't as touristy as the areas near the Golden Gate, Pier 39, Chinatown, etc...though we've enjoyed those places, too.  I think it'll be a great place that we'll take visitors because you can get a taste of everything California...& you should always go there hungry!

Grayson is a donut lover but had never had beignets, so I was excited to find those there.  And we tried almost every olive oil at Stonehouse California, & bought a bottle of the rosemary one. 

We've been wanting to go to Cowgirl Creamery for awhile, so we finally made it there, too!  If there's one food I would never want to live without, its cheese, so any place that sells that much cheese is a winner in my book.  We tried lots of kinds, & went home with four.  We may have just had cheese that night for dinner...

Cowgirl Creamery also has a restaurant right next door, Sidekick Cafe & Milk Bar, so we had lunch there.  Everything on the menu looked good (since it all included cheese...), but we both tried the grilled cheese.  I just don't feel like you can ever go wrong with grilled cheese, & I've had some really good ones lately.

After lunch, we went outside & walked down to the Pier 7 boardwalk.

{Last week I had a gift card I'd been trying to use for awhile, & finally settled on these Keds.  Apparently Keds are no longer the painfully boring white shoes I had as a kid.  I thought they were cute, but didn't really expect them to be as comfortable as they were.  I wore them around the city all day & they were perfect...already picking my next pair!}

Perfect Saturday in the City!
