Winter Greenmarket Snapshots

After spending a week in California and marveling at the quality of produce at San Francisco’s Ferry Plaza farmers market, it’s very difficult to come back to reality.

The Greenmarket was not crowded today, and of course, it began to snow as soon as I arrived. By the time I was done shopping, the flakes were falling hard and fast. There went any thoughts of going to Eataly to pick up a few more things…

I think I can say with 100% certainty that I am officially “over” winter. If only the world worked like my thought processes do.
