Urbanites mingle with goats at SF's Goat Festival

The seventh annual Goat Festival at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco was a big hit with the crowds that showed up to meet and greet with the cute little guys.

The event went down on April 18th and has unexpectedly become an international Internet sensation dubbed "Goatchella." CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture) has hosted an annual celebration over the years.

The festival was free except for a goat cheese tasting that sold out fairly quickly. Patrons were able to play with baby goats from Toluma Farms at the petting stable in the south driveway near Sur La Table.

Many of the market's artisan food vendors featured goat-inspired creations, mostly using goat cheese, except for the goat and pepper sausages and goat meat from 4505 Meats and the free goat sausage cooking demo.
