Race Street Fish Market in San Jose

I have been wanting to go to Race Stret Fish Market in San Jose for months now.  We finally decided to stop by and purchased the following items:
  • Clams and Mussels - Just because they looked delightful
  • Snapper - The Butcher suggested the Snapper as it was one of his freshest and was reasonably priced
Dinner Menu

Fort Mason Center Farmers' Market

Trevor and I went to the Fort Mason Center Farmers' Market on Sunday and we had a field day!  It was a beautiful sunny day and the size of the market won us over as it was quite smaller than other SF FM's.  The local vendors were excited to teach us about their specialty and of course offer us a tasty sample.  We purchased the following items:
  • Nectarines 
  • White peaches
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • German bratwurst sausages
  • Fresh homemade garlic spaghetti
  • Heirloom tomatoes
  • Zucchinis
  • Basil
Sunday Dinner Menu after a bottle of wine (or two, who am I kidding)
