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.
