There are many great farmers markets in San Francisco each day of the week. Whether it’s the Ferry Building on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, Alemany on Saturday or other neighborhood markets throughout the week, San Franciscans can get their share of great fresh produce.

The one day of the week that has never been on the farmers market radar has been Fridays. But that’s about to change as by the end of August, the Heart of the City Farmers Market will be expanding to a third day on Fridays.

Currently operating on Wednesdays and Sundays at the United Nations Plaza, the Heart of the City Market has always ben a favorite for the great deals and unique produce from local farms.

The Heart of the City Farmers Market is also working on connecting local farmers with corner stores in the Mid-Market and Tenderloin areas, part of the Improve SF campaign sponsored by the City and County of San Francisco. As part of the Central Market/Tenderloin Fresh Food Challenge, ideas are being submitted online for ways to better solve issues in the community. Heart of the City is looking at both farms and local stores as to ways of getting more readily available, fresh produce into the hands of customers.
