The Chinese food market area, San Francisco

January 26, 2008

On January 26, 2008, I walked around the Chinese food market area up the hill from Chinatown around Stockton Street in San Francisco. It was a chilly Saturday morning, but there were many shoppers. I’ll have to show my photos without explanation as I do not know what many of the items were.


There were many Chinese vegetables and fruits, including lotus root, winter melon, litchis etc.


The butcher shops sold many types of prepared food.


The fish and eels were fresh, many of them still swimming in tanks.


There were also many dried ingredients, including shark’s fin, sea cucumber, squid etc.


Chinese New Year was the following week. Cards for The Year of the Rat showed a cuddly little rat. Jade and jewelry were evident.


These sample birthday cakes at a bakery were terrific. This old goat would have ordered the green dragon.
