The offerings at the Saturday farmers market at the San Francisco Ferry Building just got a whole lot sweeter.
The Arlequin booth, manned by Luis Villavelazquez, executive pastry chef of Absinthe restaurant in San Francisco, will now be a regular fixture at that Saturday market, just steps from the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, beginning May 1.
The booth, which already had been up and running at the smaller Thursday farmers market there, will be selling the likes of malted cupcakes with banana cream and Oreo frosting; strawberry- and tobacco-infused scones with creme fraiche; spiced ramp and provolone biscuits; and milk chocolate macadamia nut cookies.
You’ll find the Arlequin booth next to Blue Bottle Coffee’s exterior stand, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Thursday and Saturday.
If luscious libations are more your thing, you won’t want to miss “Berries, Citrus and Rhubarb,” a fun cocktails class at the Ferry Building, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. May 7.
Master mixologist Scott Beattie will conduct a hands-on class to teach you how to make market-fresh strawberry margaritas, classic mai tais, and gimlets, and master distiller Lance Winters, of St. George Spirits in Alameda, will talk about micro-distillation. The Ferry Building’s Il Cane Rosso will serve up cocktail-friendly noshes. If that’s not enough, participants will leave with a recipe book in hand .
The class will be held under the North Arcade of the Ferry Building. Tickets are $45.
