A Must See – San Francisco’s Farmers Market

I must admit that I had heard a lot of good things about San Francisco’s Farmer’s Market, but I had not been there in all the time I have lived in the Bay Area. I was lucky to visit this weekend I must say the fresh produce, great selection of food, and gorgeous flowers set the mood for the rest of the week.

Farmer’s Markets are a great way for local farmers to showcase their produce and for food vendors to attract new food lovers. The Farmer’s Market is organized by CUESA, an organization that aims to cultivate a healthy food system. The Ferry Plaza is just the perfect spot, with the Bay Bridge in the background.

So if you’re in San Francisco and happen to be there on Saturday, Tuesday or Thursday, don’t miss the treat. Farmer’s Markets in California are typically not cheap. They offer a selection of gourmet food and are priced accordingly. However, there’s a unique selection of food items offering a stunning visual treat.

Hours: Saturday – 8 AM to 2 PM; Tuesday & Thursday – 10 AM to 2 PM, RAIN OR SHINE

How to get there: The market is held in the Embarcadero area, and usually sees a lot of traffic. If you are driving make sure you arrive early to get parking. Buses or taxis are a good way to get to the area as well. If there weather is good, you must enjoy the walk to the Ferry Plaza.
