One city, two worlds

Two of my favorite places, the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market and SF’s Chinatown, are separated by a mere ten minute walk. One smells of lavender, yeasty bread, and the ocean; the other of fish, bleach, and pee. The kombucha sipping crowd can buy two pounds of French cassoulet beans at one for the same price Accidental Asian Hipsters can buy a pound of live, croaking frogs at the other. San Francisco, this is why I love you–it seems two halves of myself have manifested in your vegetable markets. Anyway, I thought a side by side comparison would be fun.
