Sample Tastes
Sample "tastes" as you stroll along the outdoor market. We really like Sukhi's Indian Food samples — their dips and chutneys are delicious (look for their stall in the front of the Ferry Bldg), near Taylor's Refresher hamburger restaurant.

Sukhi's Indian Food Stall at Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco - delicious spices, marinades, chutneys, dips, naan breads... and more!

Taste a variety of organic fruits (peaches and plums are juicy and delicious) and artisan cheeses. We like Cowgirl Creamery and Point Reyes farmstead cheeses. Our favorite is the Original Blue Cheese — it's soooooooo creamy and delicious... try it crumbled over fresh greens... heavenly!
