S.F. Farmers’ Markets: The Full List

Four years ago, I was trying to find a comprehensive list of farmers’ markets in San Francisco, as I loved visiting different markets to see the latest produce, cheeses, meats and foodstuffs for sale. But I couldn’t find them all in one place; I had to visit three different websites to compile what I think is a full list. I wanted to share what I found with you all. So, here it is. If you know of other farmers’ markets in San Francisco, or have corrections or recommendations on what’s best at these markets, please let us know through a comment below.

UPDATED August 2014: We now spend most of our time in New York City, so I’m not as up to date on San Francisco farmers’ markets (though I miss them dearly, especially in the winter!). However, as folks seem to like this list — and since we do get to spend some of our time in the Bay Area — I’ve finally updated it, thanks to your comments below and great emails from industrious readers. I’ll aim to update the list annually, so keep the tips coming, please!
