The Big, Little World of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

“You have to talk to people, which I think is really one of the special and unique things about any farmers market, particularly in our very digital age. It’s really about the interactions, and the experience, and the community." —Brie Mazurek, communications director, CUESA

Stop by for fresh, California-grown produce (Eatwell Farm), delicious eats from jicama kimchi (Volcano Kimchi) to traditional Arab man'oushe (Reem's), and a taste of the loyal, loving community that lies at the heart of the San Francisco market.

—Matt Lofink, bartender at the James Beard Award-nominated CURE NOLA in New Orleans

To find—or make—a great mint julep, look no further than bourbon.

Can Chinese Go Fast-Casual? Junzi Kitchen Says Yes - The Epoch Times

The team tested out their family recipes, with culinary prodigy Lucas Sin at the helm of the kitchen.

Sin makes all the sauces in-house. There's "sweet bei," a take on "tianmian jiang"—a sweet-savory condiment, made by fermenting wheat flour, that is often served with Peking duck. Here, it's infused with sesame, an addictive garlic chili, and a savory soy that draws inspiration from "huangdou jiang," another type of fermented soybean paste, with extra umami from shiitake mushrooms and aromatics.

Junzi Kitchen, first established near Yale and now with a location near Columbia University, wants to bring Chinese food to the masses.
