If you’re a San Francisco resident who makes a habit of picking up produce at the Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Market — the emporium of sustainably grown foods that takes over the Embarcadero on Tuesdays and Saturdays — chances are you already know the difference between a Brandywine and Cherokee Purple heirloom tomato, and are willing to pay for it. But customers will soon face an added premium for the privilege of noshing on local or organic products.
Yes 25 cents per bag is a lot but Farmer’s Market is more of a show than a real genuine market. The food items are great in quality but also ridiculous in prices!!! If anybody can fit the 25 cents price in their head, it is them. A traditional Farmer’s Market is not for high society. Then again it is very in fashion to save on bags and they have to join in someday.
