There are changes afoot at ~BLUE BOTTLE FERRY BUILDING~. The space, which currently consists of the main café space and the north side “secret window,” is getting some upgrades to keep coffee service efficient. There will eventually be three points for ordering coffee, three espresso machines, a brew-by-scale brew bar, and new countertops. From now until Friday January 30th, the north side window will be closed and affogatos, parfaits, Liege waffles, sandwiches, and salads will not be available. Then, from February 2nd through 27th, the main entrance will be closed and all ordering will be done through the north side window. Hours remain the same during the remodel. You can find more details on the remodel here. 1 Ferry Plaza #7 at Embarcadero.

Joe Wolf and Amy Brown of ~MARLA BAKERY~ have another outlet for selling their fabulous baked goods: the Saturday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Every Saturday from 8am-2pm you can find their breads, pastries, and cookies in the south driveway. Yeehaw. 1 Ferry Plaza at Embarcadero.

Oakland’s ~JUHU BEACH CLUB~ is coming west, with a new pop-up at the Thursday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market starting January 15th. They’ve got a bright pink tent (you can’t miss it), and they’ll be slinging chef Preeti Mistry’s flava-packed street food for lunch from 10am-2pm. Their signature pavs will be available, including the Pork Vindalated, Sloppy Lil’ P, and some new choices they’ll be trying out. In addition, you’ll find special bhel salads using fruit and vegetables from the market and a seasonal fruit lassi with Straus yogurt. 1 Ferry Plaza at Embarcadero.
