For those who are already in love with their local farmers market, we’re preaching to the choir. For everyone else, go find your local farmers market. Eating healthier will make you feel physically better, and supporting local farms and food producers is something that’s good for everyone. This week CUESA, the non-profit behind three of the Bay Area’s key markets, is celebrating National Farmers Market Week, August 5-11.

 

You can find them at these five weekly markets:
Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco on Saturdays (8 am to 2 pm) and Tuesdays and Thursdays (10 am to 2 pm)
Mission Community Market in San Francisco on Thursdays (4 to 8 pm)
Jack London Square Farmers Market in Oakland on Sundays (10 am to 3 pm)

As part of National Farmers Market Week, CUESA is also selling this cute “I ❤ My Farmers Market” tomato tote bag ($15) at their booth. The funds go toward a good cause, as CUESA’s key mission is to “cultivate a healthy food system through the operation of farmers markets and educational programs.”
