Originally opened in 1898, the San Francisco Ferry Building has recently undergone some major changes and has once again become one of our city's much loved landmarks.
One of the most sublime changes was the opening of a permanent Farmer's Market, which draws huge crowds when it's open on weekends and Tuesdays.
What you might not know, is that inside the Ferry Building there are a vast array of amazing shops specializing in what San Franciscans love best: food.
Besides the fish monger, meat markets, cheese artisans and specialty bakeries, there are also many wonderful and diverse restaurants.
But in addition to all that, there are some really unique shops that carry tons of great gear to cook with and to serve all the bountiful fresh foods you can buy here.
One of those places is the Kingdom of Herbs. They have a great selection of organic herbs and plants you can purchase to start your own little indoor herb garden. They also have a knowledgeable staff to help you select what will work best for your environment.
We saw lots of whimsical pottery full of polka-dots in bright colors, as well as subdued zen-looking pieces, perhaps for planting a good luck bamboo shoot. Something for every taste, no matter what type of garden you're planning, or table you're setting.
