by Meghann on November 7, 2009

It has been a BEAUTIFUL day in San Francisco. The weather could not be better and neither could the food!

Day 2 of the FoodBuzz Blogger Festival kicked off with a breakfast gathering on the second floor of the ferry building.

Sadly we were not impressed with what FoodByzz had to offer – Good thing there was a HUGE Farmer’s Market happening right outside filled with lots of good eats to make up for it. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market was HUGE. It was filled with so many wonderful booths selling gorgeous local products and produce.
