A Run to the Farmer’s Market

We started the day with a run before sunrise. I was scared of the hills, but we found a pretty flat route and it was fun.IMG 3306 thumb A Run to the Farmer’s Market  Everyone met in the lobby of the Sir Francis Drake to do about 4 miles. We didn’t get nearly enough sleep, but we were in good spirits.bloggersrunning thumb A Run to the Farmer’s Market

Post run we headed back to the room to get ready for the day. Four girls, four showers, four heads of hair to fix… means four times as long to get ready. Actually, we made fairly good time because we wanted to get food!walkingtothemarket thumb A Run to the Farmer’s Market

On our way we did some window shopping…IMG 3313 thumb A Run to the Farmer’s Market

 

Wait, are those food bloggers for sale?! IMG 3314 thumb A Run to the Farmer’s Market

Nope. They were just enjoying breakfast at a cafe. 

Meghann, Bobbi, Melissa and I grabbed our cameras and were ready to hit the road!IMG 3315 thumb1 A Run to the Farmer’s Market

Blue Bottle Coffee Co. is said to have the best coffee around.

No surprise that the secret is out because there were long lines at each of their multiple locations at the market.

IMG 3323 thumb A Run to the Farmer’s Market I ordered their “New Orleans style iced coffee”. Sorry, it didn’t have Bourbon in it.

But, it was the most amazing iced coffee I’ve had to date. Strong, yet smooth  and perfectly creamy… It disappeared too fast.

With coffee in hand I was ready for FOOD. By this time I was super hungry and wanted everything. I managed to talk myself out of cookies for breakfast.

Bobbi and I headed outside to see all of our breakfast options. After a loop around the booths we were on a mission for eggs. IMG 3328 thumb A Run to the Farmer’s Market

I ordered wild mushroom eggs and a baguette from Hayes Street Grill.

IMG 3335 thumb A Run to the Farmer’s Market They really hooked up the mushrooms and every bite was super meaty from the ‘shrooms and flavorul too.
