Holiday Gift Guide
November 29, 2012
Make the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market your one-stop shop for the winter holidays. Here are some gift ideas from our farmers and artisans, perfect for goodie baskets, stocking stuffers, and host or hostess gifts. Pick up some hand-crafted specialty ingredients for the foodie or craft cocktail maker in your life, or pamper them with the fixings for a natural home spa treatment. We have something for everyone.
Can't decide? Get your loved ones farmers market gift coins and let them pick out some treats for themselves. We also have Ferry Plaza Farmers Market canvas bags, aprons, and posters for purchase at the Information Booth on Saturday, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. For that special someone who is passionate about good food but doesn't want more stuff, consider making a donation to CUESA on their behalf to support our local food system.
