Ferry Building Farmers Market info (lots)

I just found a wonderful link for those who want to know what's available at the SF Ferry Building Farmers' Market. This page was last updated on July 21, and I think it's updated regularly (perhaps weekly.) It lists each vendor, what they sell and the current prices. The list is quite specific -- produce is listed by variety in most cases.
Here's the link:

Yes, that's true. But the two sites provide different kinds of info. The "official site" can serve as a shopping list for what's available now, whereas Ditty's site gives in-depth profiles of the farmers behind the food and their personal stories. For me, that connection to the people who grow our food is a big part of why I shop at farmers markets.
I live at 11th & Harrison, so the UN Plaza Farmer's is much more convenient -- even though the produce isn't as good.
This past weekend, I was SHOCKED to find exceptional Ahi Tuna for... $3/lb. Yes, $3 -- it's not a typo.
I ate sashimi until I almost choked. I couldn't believe the quality -- I thought it was going to be grill fish until I got a taste of it raw!
