San Francisco Farmers’ Markets

Jeff Howard September 2, 2021

Apartment living in one of SF’s many exemplary neighborhoods doesn’t mean you need to eat out at a trendy restaurant every night. Fresh fruit, organic vegetables, and ready-made meals are easily obtained at San Francisco Farmers’ Markets located across The City! Enjoy an urban tractor ride with us to explore ten of the top spots offering locally-grown produce and much more!

Heart of The City Farmers’ Market

Opened in 1981, this popular UN Plaza Farmers’ Market has operated for 40 years right here in the heart of San Francisco. Located directly across Market Street from the brand-new 1177 Market apartments, SF’s only independent, farmer-operated, non-profit market is open rain or shine from 7 AM – 5 PM on Wednesdays and Sundays. Residents of 1188 Mission, 1190 Mission, and 33 8th have long visited this lovely bi-weekly gathering. However, Trinity Place will soon become a hotspot for groceries every day with the arrival of Whole Foods.
