​This afternoon kicks off a weekend of harvest-related activities at the Ferry Building. Free events include an olive oil tasting, apple pressing and cider making, a Barnyard by the Bay petting zoo, and live music. Till 8 p.m. today, an organic spirits (boo!), wine, and beer tasting is going down. Tickets are $15 for five tastes, or $25 for 10, and the proceeds benefit California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), which is historically one of the oldest certifying agencies. Snazzy wine glass is yours to keep.

At tomorrow's Ferry Plaza farmers' market, there'll be harvest produce in full effect, an heirloom apple tasting and cider pressing, butter making, and wool spinning. These are free family friendly activities that run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vendors throughout the market will also offer seasonal tastes. A combo of gypsy jazz and barnyard animals wrap the weekend's festivities up on Sunday. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., celebrate the harvest with face painting, and by (gently) stroking a cute little barnyard animal in the petting zoo. Gently, we said!
