As a person who has practiced healthy eating for nearly a year, I have gone to farmers markets up and down California.
One of my favorite farmers markets in California is the Fort Mason Center San Francisco Farmer’s Market.
One reason is because it’s in the Marina neighborhood of San Francisco but in the city, the market features local farms and organic produce for San Francisco residents and visitors.
Where many farmers markets tend to be seasonal, the Fort Mason Center San Francisco Farmer’s Market is held on Sundays between 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Granted, it’s not huge as some farmer’s markets take several blocks, the location does provide entertainment and a lot of delicious food sold by vendors.
Because it’s in the Marina, sometimes it’s cold and chilly and it can get windy, so I often worry about booths being picked up by the wind. Which I have seen happen.
Nevertheless, people enjoy going to this Farmer’s Market and really…where else can you be near a marina, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and purchase a lot of inexpensive organic vegetables for a great price in the city? The Fort Mason Center Farmers Market in San Francisco is definitely worth checking out!

UPDATE: I revisited Fort Mason Center Farmers’ Market in July 2016, here is a new blog post with more photos!
