Divisadero and Grove Farmer's Market in San Francisco

Mikey and I visited the new farmer's market in NOPA on Grove at Divisadero. There were about 10 food stands and a lot of variety. We bought the basics: potatoes, onions, strawberries, peaches, blueberries, and a mystery leafy green. The strawberries were the best that I can ever remember tasting. I loved the booth with all the Asian cooking greens. I received a lot of cooking tips from the man running the booth and bought a leafy green that I've never cooked with before (a.k.a mystery leafy green).

The market had a neighborhood feel to it. It was small but the whole block was closed to traffic. Kids rode their bikes and ran around while friends stopped to chat in the middle of the street. It felt almost like a neighborhood block party but without the jumpy castle.

And, the fruits and vegetables were quite simply put, delicious. What a luxury to be able to walk to a farmer's market. Mikey loved all the samples. And all the dogs in turn loved Mikey. The market was packed with the young and old. The whole place pulsated with joy and good food.

That green hanging on your stroller is commonly known as water spinach (Ipomoea aquatica).
