Market Watch: What Inspires Tacolicious's Chef at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

Tacolicious got its start as a pop-up stand serving a small selection of tacos, house-made salsas and agua frescas at the very first Thursday market in July of 2009. The menu featured whatever the Tacolicious crew was inspired by at the farmers market that surrounded them.

If your house is anything like mine, you too have a growing inventory of old cell phones, video games, and DVDs sitting around, gathering dust.

You could always try to sell them on eBay, or at some trade-in site. But the problem is that unless you’re already a proficient user of eBay, or similar sites, the process of auctioning off goods is not all that intuitive, and can easily turn into a time-sink. Now, there's an easier way.

Now that 7x7 is firmly settled in its new South Park HQ, I've gotten over the shock of suddenly having fewer lunch options tempting me each and every midday than we did in our old Union Square offices.

When Sweet Woodruff, the new casual lunch spot from the family behind Sons & Daughters, opened recently on Sutter Street, my heart went pitty pat for our old neighborhood.
