The Ultimate Guide to 120 Bay Area Farmers’ Markets | SF, East Bay, Peninsula, South Bay + North Bay

|May 26, 2017

The Bay Area is famous for a few things: farm to table restaurants, food festivals and creative cuisine, just to name a few. You may wonder how we got so lucky, but the answer is simple. Here in Northern California we’re blessed with year round bounties in local produce, meat and seafood.

As a result, we don’t just get summer farmers’ markets; we get them year round! So what if we’re a little spoiled when it comes to fresh, organic and sustainable options. We’re certainly not complaining!

Check out our guide to find out where you can find the nearest market in San Francisco, East Bay, Peninsula, South Bay and North Bay. Then start stocking up on locally grown groceries!
