Tory Farms returned to the market last Saturday with baskets of their lovely May Crest peaches. The May Crest variety is one of the first to appear for the season and is remarkably sweet and flavorful. Rebecca and Tory Torosian of Tory Farms grow a wide variety of peaches, nectarines, and pluots throughout the season. This week, Rebecca tells me they’ll also have Rose Diamond nectarines and possibly a few of their wonderful apricots.
This weekend, CUESA will kick off the next phase of our Waste Wise Market Initiative by becoming the first plastic-bag free farmers market in San Francisco. If you forget to B.Y.O.B., vendors will still be dispensing paper and/or compostable bags at their booths and we’ll also be offering re-usable and washable 100% cotton Eco-Bags for sale at our information booth.
If anyone has the inside scoop when it comes to the Ferry Plaza Farmers market it's Lulu Meyer, associate director of market operations at CUESA. You'll see her at the market, rain or shine. Every week, she'll be giving us her short list for the market—just in time for Saturday shopping. Go to cuesa.org for more information about farmers, what's in season and market goings-on.
