Inner Sunset Farmers Market

Sunset District Farmer's Market
Yesterday, I poked around a Farmers Market on 9th Avenue in the Inner Sunset District. The Afghan Bolani booth was a pleasant discovery, makers of a kind of pastry/quesadilla/stuffed bread-- pumpkin, lentil, spinach -- served with a mouth watering selection of dips and pepper jellies. As for the Market overall, I wouldn't say the prices were much of a bargain, but still I believe in Farmers Markets. Aesthetically, they enliven a cityscape with flowers, beautifully stacked produce, and handsome shoppers. More important, they are public sites that help tie a neighborhood's residents not only together with each other but with the region that surrounds the city. San Francisco's hinterlands are especially bounteous and for that we are blessed.
