Fort Mason Farmers Market

Fort Mason kicked off their new Farmers' Market (Sundays 9:30 - 1:30) this weekend and it certainly got off to an excellent start -- the place was packed.
Unfortunately, not everyone was made to feel welcome.  I felt sad for these guys with the hang-dog look, waiting outside the limits of the "NO PETS PLEASE" sign.
Roli Roti brought a truck equipped with a rotisserie and a full load of whole chickens.  It smelled divine.
Stone fruit is in season.  I enjoyed looking over the tumbling piles of peaches and cherries.
There were also some excellent baked goods on hand including Flourchylde and a french bread maker.  We encountered Flourchylde earlier this year in Novato on our way up to Sonoma.  Their cakes and treats are not to be missed!

There were also excellent veggies on hand of various colors, shapes and sizes including squash, turnips, and spring onions.
Fort Mason also had an educational display in the parking lot about the causes of various kinds of cracks in the pavement.  It was a good lesson in materials science.  The exhibit was sponsored by the Exploratorium.  The science behind the fractures were displayed on this poll...
Examples of different kinds of fractures were marked in the pavement.  We see here a crack caused by a square embedded object.
Here's a t-shaped fracture.
Fort Mason offers some lovely views of the Bay.  We spotted some sailboats in the fog as we made our way to the Book Bay.  Book Bay is one of my favorite bookstores in the city.  Your purchases benefit the San Francisco Public Library and because the store is stocked with used book donations, it's fun to wander and find more offbeat and unusual stuff for a bargain.
It was a lovely and sunny afternoon but the fog still lingered in pockets.  The Golden Gate Bridge is almost completely obscured.
The Palace of Fine Arts looked majestic with the misty backdrop.
On our way back home, I spotted this lovely yellow and white flower.  Always make time to stop and smell the flowers :-)
