Greens Restaurant 

Vegetarian Bistro since 1979!

The opening of Greens Restaurant on San Francisco Bay in 1979 forever changed the image and appreciation of vegetarian cooking in America. Known for a distinctive culinary style of celebrating vegetables, Greens produces ever-changing menus that are dedicated to the seasonal harvests of local farmers and the organic gardens of its farm, Green Gulch. 
With a panorama view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, and the Marina sea life, Greens Restaurant is a lively scene in a spacious warehouse where grand windows stretch floor-to-ceiling in the dining room. The restaurant, and private dining room, is adorned by colorful skies and the majestic changing scenes and sunset of the Pacific Ocean. 


Josey Baker Bread

Peace, love, and whole grain sourdough delicatessen

We make whole grain sourdough bread with fresh-milled, local, organic grains.

Whole Grain:

Josey bakes whole grain bread. While they don’t exclusively use whole grain flour—some of our breads contain up to 45% sifted (aka white) bread flour—their favorite breads are the ones made exclusively with stone ground whole grain flour. Whole grains are also better for you, with more fiber and nutrients (hello, B vitamins!) than processed grains.


This is where things get a little wild.

Josey breads are all made with wild yeast, which is to say they’re all sourdoughs. A sourdough bread is one made with wild yeast (a starter) instead of commercial yeast like you buy in the store. Most bread is made with commercial yeast because it’s designed to make bread rise quickly and dependably.

Fully Hydrated:

Josey fully hydrates the grains because it’s a lot easier to end up with moist bread if you start out with moist dough.

A lot of water in dough makes it very sticky and hard to hand, and well, that can just be a pain in the ass. This is especially true if machines are dividing the dough, or shaping it into loaves.


Fort Mason Farmers Market

35 farmstands, Sundays, farm to table

The Fort Mason Center Farmers’ Market is held at this historic, former U.S. Army West Coast headquarters serving the Marina neighborhood and city-tourists alike. With over 35 Farmers and Food Purveyors, marketgoers discover the bounty of the Bay Area’s microclimates, the North Bay’s organic farms and the San Joaquin Valley’s finest harvest. This bustling Sunday market, 9:30am to 1:30pm, is the perfect place to find ingredients for a delicious Sunday brunch or picnic. Views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay are awe-inspiring.


City Lights: Book store 

Literary Meeting Place since 1953

The City Lights Foundation fosters an active engagement with books and literary culture. Our public events, publishing program, and educational outreach are dedicated to sustaining a vibrant community of readers, writers, and independent thinkers.
