10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Sunday: Best Place to Have Brunch While Shopping 

Jack London Square Farmers' Market

Getting Rover cracked can induce an appetite, but no matter how huge your appetite, it's inconceivable that you could enter this farmers' market and leave hungry. By 10 a.m. generous vendors are busy slicing organic apples and juicy tangerines, and spreading out containers of countless sauces and dips, offering free samples of just about everything else in sight. With its fresh-squeezed juices, breads from local bakeries, vegetables, and flowers, this market offers everything you could ask for in a Sunday brunch except the champagne mimosa -- and the bill. If the samples don't fill you up, follow the smell of Indian spices to the samosa stand. For only a few dollars each, these fresh samosas and tubs of chutneys could easily make those fancy, expensive brunches a thing of the past. Besides, where else can you walk along the waterfront and look out over the bay while stocking up on your produce for the week?
