Then the eating began! We walked through the marketplace and tried just about everything that was being sampled and sold. Right outside of Sur La Table was a kiosk, El Porteno Empanadas. My hub, Shaun picked the prosciutto & fontina cheese one. Good choice! Best empanada we've ever had. Warm, gooey inside, flaky buttery outside. http://www.elportenosf.com/
|Stonehouse California Olive Oil|
We tried the dark chocolate at Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker and purchased a milk chocolate with sea salted almonds. Best. Chocolate. Ever. http://www.scharffenberger.com
|Famous Blue Bottle Iced Coffee|
I'm an avid Food Network viewer and love the show, The Best Thing I Ever Ate. There was an episode about beverages and Blue Bottle Coffee was featured. There is a Blue Bottle Coffee located in the marketplace. Lucky me! I ordered an iced coffee, and it was the best cup of joe I've ever had. Really. http://www.bluebottlecoffee.net/
|Julio and his big baguette|
While I was waiting for my coffee, my nephew bought a 3 foot baguette from Acme Bread Company that he played with and ate for the entire day. It was delicious and entertaining.

Next time I'm going to have to stop at Boccalone Salumeria, Cowgirl Creamery’s Artisan Cheese Shop & Sidekick, and Ciao Bella gelateria. I can't wait to come back here!
