Free Seasonal Cooking Demo & Tasting | Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

This waterfront market, run by the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA), has over 100 food, fruit, and vegetable vendors on Saturdays and the entire Bay as its beautiful backdrop.

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.

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

Professional baker and Bakers Dozen board member Rose Gillen will be representing the organization in a tribute to the famous baker Flo Braker.

Rose Gillen started baking at the age of six with an avocado-green Betty Crocker Easy Bake Oven. Today, Rose is a classically-trained professional baker based in San Francisco. She studied at the world-famous Ecole Lenotre in Paris and at the CIA Greystone. She combines the tradition of French baking with a contemporary American spin. Growing up on a farm in the midwest, she knows that only the finest, freshest natural ingredients make spectacular desserts. Rose bakes with the best materials the Bay Area has to offer. The recipe she is working from today is one of Flo Braker’s originals and honors Flo’s wonderful and enduring baking spirit.

All 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.
