Debut of Fort Mason Center Farmer’s Market a Huge Success – Popular, If a Bit Pricey

Monday, June 7th, 2010

The Fort Mason Center Farmers’ Market kicked off yesterday and it’s already on the Yelp, believe it or not. A good time was had by all.

Mary Ladd has the deets on this latest way to grocery shop up in the Great White North. Check it.

 An anthropomorphic organic  hot dog/carrot welcomes you to the Safeway Gate at the back-door of Fort Mason:

The mise-en-scene, not too far from our refugee Panhandle Bandshell. It’s big, baby.

Greens Restaurant is back there on the left. Mmmm….greens.

Is this a good price? No se.

Snap Pea-flavor Scream Sorbet -perche no?

And what else was up there but a mini showroom for Public Bikes, that joint from Dan Tan-Nguyen and others about town.

This event is a California Farmers’ Markets Association Certified Farmers’ Market, don’t you know:

It’ll run every Sunday from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM all the way through October.

See you there!

Earth Hour 2009 in San Francisco – It’s Lights Out, Sort Of

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

Well, Earth Hour was marked in San Francisco last night with a whole mess of people scrambling up Twin Peaks to see the lights go out at 8:30 PM. Some expected the whole city to go dark, but that’s not the way it works. This photo of the Bay Bridge from last year shows how things operate.

See what Earth Hour 2009 looked like for yourself with a this time lapse video – City Hall, normally quite a bright building at night, is on the left. Watch it flickr off about ten seconds in. Click to play.

Now here’s the view from Twin Peaks just after 8:30 PM. City Hall is the black void at the bottom. You can see that the people at Pepsi, 505 Montgomery and the unnamed dome to the right got a late start on EH09  (assuming they participated at all). Click to expand:

Many bars and restaurants were lit just with candles. See a list of some of the participants after the jump.

See you (dimly) next year!
