Inside the Ferry Building

We lunched well inside the Ferry Building I had a delicious bowl of clam chowder with crusty white bread.
Fred organised a late afternoon interview with a mushroom grower so we had several hours to wander round looking at the shops after the outside farmers market wound up.
I spent quite a while in the kitchenware shop. I have never seen so many things for a barbeque in all my life. I do have a tradition of always picking up some cast iron item while in the USA and was sorely tempted by a set of dishes and irons for making Crème Brulee - no more gas blow torches! However this visit our suit cases are just about at the weight limit for flying so we didn't get them.
Some fresh produce is available inside Ferry Building and the shop below also organised weekly home deliveries

The cheese shop was amazing, just too many varieties to choose from.

There was also many different bottled products.

The display of mushrooms was quite remarkable and after a slight hiccup with security guards who where not that keen about Fred filming he secured an interesting interview including discussion about truffles.  Fred is passionate about fungi and he and Jan are returning home earlier that us because he has truffle responsibilities.
