The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market operates year-round from 8 am to 2 pm.

On most Saturdays, free cooking demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.

CUESA celebrates the height of pepper season with a day of tasting, learning, and cooking on September 21, 2013.

Pepper Celebration Schedule

  • 10 am to 1 pm: Sample a variety of pepper pinchos (Spanish bites like tapas, but usually involving a skewer) and pick up recipes. Visit the educational display to learn all about pepper heat, which is measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHUs), and spice things up by guessing the capsaicin levels of different peppers.
  • 10 am: Pepper Talk: David Winsberg from Happy Quail Farms and other Ferry Plaza farmers explain how peppers are grown, discuss differences between varieties, and share their favorite ways to enjoy them.

Enjoy pepper-themed cooking demos in the CUESA Classroom:

  • 11 am: Kory Stewart, Americano Restaurant & Bar at Hotel Vitale
  • Noon: Cooking demo (chef TBA) and Tastemade food video app demo
