THE EMBARCADEROA new vendor is joining the party at the Saturday Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market, beginning June 22: Cremeux Ex Machina, a gelato and sorbetto maker that sources milk for and makes their treats on-site at a dairy farm in Petaluma. This Modern Farmer article has more on the couple behind the project. Also coming to the Saturday market is regular Thursday vendor Sow, the Dogpatch-based juice bar. [7x7]

From tomorrow through Sunday, she'll serve up black forest cake jars, caramel-cocoa nib Rice Krispie treats, strawberry cheesecake, brownies, and more. [EaterWire]
