The Ferry Building Farmers’ Market opened for lunch today with street food vendors jockeying for attention with actual farmers. 4505 Meats was there with smoked hot dogs, Cap’n Mike came down from Marin to sell smoked fish sandwiches, and Roli Roti hauled in the rotisserie grill, in addition to stalls selling pizza, tacos (Korean and Mexican), sorbet, and coffee. Oh, there were also fruits and vegetables. It is a farmers’ market after all. Now setting up Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the weekly market promises to become the new hot spot for downtown lunchers. Let’s hope the weather holds.
