Nigel (my husband) and I visit the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market almost every single Saturday morning. It’s quite an amazing routine and I feel extremely lucky to be able to wake up and walk to this iconic and beautiful spot in SF – one of my favorites. As we approach the Ferry Building we head straight for the outside Blue Bottle coffee kiosk and wait in the line (which moves fairly fast). On a 75 degree day like today, I went for the New Orleans Style Iced Coffee. New today to the market is Craftsman & Wolves! They have a spot in the Mission on Valencia street and will now have a stand at the market – awesome. We shared the infamous “Rebel Within” which is an asiago-cheese, green onion, and Easton sausage-flecked muffin with a poached egg in the center and it is quite amazing!
We did our usual route through the entire market and this is one of my favorite times of the year – beautiful flowers and cherries and strawberries! From here, we walked up market to brunch at Bluestem Brasserie and then onto the SFMOMA which closed in a month for a long (but what will be an amazing) renovation.
One of my favorite spots in San Francisco is Maiden Lane. Not only is it very European (which after living in Italy for five months, I just can’t get enough of!) but it is one of the fashion alley’s of SF – cobblestone streets lead the way down 3 blocks of outdoor cafe’s, a live opera singer, sometimes live jazz as you pass Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Theory, Tory Burch, Escada, Gumps and last but not least even one of frank lloyd wright’s famous buildings – the Xanadu Gallery.
And now amongst the European, fashion alley of SF, a newly discovered boutique that I had to share with you all – Fashionphile.
I love the concept – they sell vintage, rare, limited-edition and discounted luxury bags (think Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Chanel, Gucci and more!) SF ladies – be sure to stop by their third floor shop during the week or also online and also on Facebook and their blog. AND not only can you shop for these a-mazing bags, but Fashionphile will also buy or sell your authentic luxury bag.
