Alemany Farmers' Market

The Alemany Farmers' Market was the very first farmers' market in all of California, and it remains the only city-run market in San Francisco. Often referred to as the "people's market" for its affordability and as the "grandaddy" of farmer's markets for its history, Alemany—long a leader in the movement for the availability of sustainable and affordable produce—is a perfect place to explore the fruits of our small farms' labor. // Saturdays from dawn to dusk; 100 Alemany Blvd. (Bernal Heights), sfgov.org.
