  • I’m familiar with all of the vendors you mentioned in that article. I can vouch for the quality of the food of all but one: the oysters. We got sick soon after downing a dozen last year. It happens from time to time, I know. But now I’m kinda gun shy about going back to that vendor. I’d rather go to Hog Island Oysters at the Ferry Building Marketplace.

  • Oh no about the oysters! So sorry to hear that. It’s true, though, about oysters getting the best of us even at the toniest establishments. I do heartily agree with you about Hog Island Oysters at the Ferry Building. Without a doubt, they are the best oysters I’ve ever had. They are sooooo good and so amazingly sweet that they’re the only oysters I eat without any accompanying sauces. Why cover up perfection, right?

  • cool article, looks like I need to expand my farmers market radius!

  • Thanks for your great article about non-fresh produce offerings at farmers’ markets.
    You did a fine job describing the products of three of our favorite non-ag. vendors at the Downtown Palo Alto Farmers’ Market, Fabrique Delices, Cowgirl Creamery, and Oaxacan Foods. Hope lots of readers follow your lead and check us out on Saturdays mornings from 8 to 12. Our market has been around for over 25 years and we hope to continue for 25 years more.

  • I love the oysters there! I did get sick once but can’t pin it on the oysters for sure (though one is always quick to suspect them), and have had them many times without incident.

    Today I had something new there — the seafood tostada. Wow!! A very generous mound of shrimp and fish, with a small amount of rice, on a tortilla. Delicious and a good deal for $5.

    I just love the Farmers’ Market.
