Last Sunday, June 13th, the North Beach Farmers’ Market opened with the support of hundreds of San Francisco residents and tourists. It was a pleasant, sunny San Francisco day for the grand opening. North Beach is a newbie in the Farmer’s Market scene and this market was the perfect size to ease the neighborhood into the shopping experience. This market is the smallest I have seen in the city, but it offers most of what you would expect. Freshly baked breads and pastries, olives and olive oil, cheese, honey, abundant fruit and vegetables, pasture-raised eggs, and brightly colored flowers. There wasn’t a coffee vendor, which most people do seek out at farmers markets. But then again, this FM is in North Beach! You can easily walk over to one of the many cafes for your daily fix of java! Take that coffee and fresh fruit to Washington Square park and enjoy!
Please show your support of this market, by visiting every Sunday. Be sure to sign the petition, requesting to extend the market until early fall.

I’ll be sure to hit it up and see if I can score some nice flowers there!
