At the beginning of the 1900s the Sunset was just sand dunes.  Today there are streets of tiny houses painted pastel shades, lots of restaurant choices from old diners to inventive Asian.  Take a walk along Irving and you'll find a dive bar next to a dry cleaner next to a Russian grocery store next to a hookah pipe cafe.  A few more blocks and you'll be at the ocean.

market morning

A late October morning at the Heart of the City Farmer's Market.  Lots of colour...

Different varieties of apples, dark chocolate almond brittle, the last pluots of the season.  Also sugarcane, peanuts, walnuts, mushrooms...

The biggest crowds huddled around the fresh jujubes

At this market you can also get lots of prepared food such as rotisserie chicken and potatoes,

a thin crust pizza from a sidewalk oven,

or a warm fresh waffle dusted with powdered sugar

Or, the Whale

Have a listen to "Call and Response" by local band Or, the Whale from a 2008 show at The Independent on Divisadero.  Great energy!
