Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco is one of the most well known farmers markets in the US and I’ve been wanting to visit for a very long time.

Last month when I was in SF with the FH, we finally got a chance to visit. The market is open three days a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) but Saturday is the best day to go because that is when the most vendors are in attendance. The market covers most of the front of the Ferry Plaza Building and then also runs in the rear of the building too. The rear area is also where most of the prepared food can be found.

I loved seeing all the fruits, vegetables and herbs.


I love mug cakes. They are so easy to make and require very little clean-up.  It takes a few minutes to put together and only about 1 minute of cooking time. Whenever I’m craving a sweet treat for one, I turn to a mug cake.

The other day I experimented with some other flavor mug cakes. So far I’ve made nutella chocolate mug cake and chocolate mug cake. I set about trying to make a peanut butter chocolate one.

Truluck’s was recently voted by San Diego Magazine readers as best happy hour, best wine list, best seafood, best service and best of the best. I have passed by Truluck’s quite a few times and always see it when dining at Fleming’s happy hour, so I decided to check it out.


In addition to offering happy hour daily (4:30to 7pm), on Sundays they offer happy hour all night long. Inside, the bar lounge area has plenty of seating, though all tables are tall round ones that sit about four. The tables were a little small, so it was had for us to fit our food.

Browsing the menu, I could see why San Diegans enjoy the happy hour so much, especially if you’re there for a drink. While the typical happy hour might offer about 5 or 6 different drink options, Truluck’s offers 30+ drinks at half price. Full happy hour menu can be found here.

However, if you are at happy hour mainly for the food (as I usually am), I found the options a little limited. There were only about three items I really wanted to try. In addition to happy hour, they also serve the full menu at the bar as well.
