The first San Francisco farmers’ market was established in 1943, and locals have been obsessed with getting their produce straight from the source ever since. These days almost every neighborhood has its own market, bursting with organic fruits and vegetables, gourmet goods and free-range meats that many of the finest San Francisco restaurants use to create their dishes. Some markets even offer live music, entertainment and educational events. For the most variety, including hard-to-find Asian greens and wild mushrooms, try the city’s three largest markets at the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero, on Alemany Boulevard in Bernal Heights and in Civic Center’s United Nations Plaza.
