I love it when two of my favorite things come together, and for today that’s baseball and food.
When I was at AT&T Park recently to cheer on the San Francisco Giants, I also checked out the 2-month-old garden behind centerfield next to the bleachers. The lower section under the giant scoreboard was once a lonely, quiet corridor with a few vendors. But now it’s bustling with activity, from Giants fans to busy bees.
The park’s main food vendor, Bon Appetit Management, built the garden to be filled with seasonal fruits, herbs and vegetables. The produce goes into the food they sell at their two stands, including flat breads, fresh salads and sandwiches. The menu isn’t all vegetarian, but there’s a heavy emphasis on the greens and they’re showcased especially in the flatbreads.
The garden provides a nice spot to appreciate nature before a game, and the fresh local produce makes sense in San Francisco’s food-focused environment. Just wondering how many home runs will land in the lettuce planter?
