The veggies looked amazing, there was a police presence their but we ended up seeing a younger guy get bamboozled....not sure if it was a pick pocket or what but it happened so fast, not a lot anyone could do...then had an older guy smoking weed right next to us...it was interesting to say the least.

This is my second time at the farmers market on a Saturday and it was only better. Make sure you have plenty of cash because a lot of the vendors do not take credit cards. The produce is fabulous as well as local olive oil's, cheeses, smoked salmon, and nuts. On Saturdays it opens at 8 AM and I highly... More

Like the view of SFO COIT tower, the trolley ride and restaurants in the area. We walked to the COIT, China town, Russian Hill, saw the crooked road from this hill and the surrounding areas.

Good open market. Plenty of organic vegetables and fruits are available at reasonable prices. Experience decent food from the food trucks.View of the bay is relaxing.

Well worth a visit for all the sites and smells - would definitely recommend for fellow foodies (even though it was torture looking at all the amazing ingredients and not being able to cook because of staying in a hotel!)

I visited here on a Saturday morning and had some coffee and a snack while looking out at the beautiful bay. Lots of food vendors, and probably some other stuff too, I was mostly paying attention to the food. Really a nice scene if the weather is good and worth a visit in my opinion. If the weather is bad,... More

We went to the Embarcadero's farmer's market during our time in SF, and it did not disappoint. It is huge! You could probably do lunch for free there with all the samples. Well worth an hour or so of your time if your in the area.

What an amazing farmers market filled with local, organic produce, delicious cooked food, and lovely local vendors. Go early and don't miss out on the jewelry and handmade items being sold in the front on Market street. Bring tote bags and cash!

There is everything grown in California (that is edible) on display. There are plenty of samples and great smells and tastes to keep you going for an hour or more. The jazz band playing outside made for a very pleasant morning in the sun.

This is our favorite spot on a Saturday morning and we try to include it in every SF visit. Walking through the market and sampling fresh produce, local artisanal products, it is just amazing! Even if you aren't shopping for food and don't live locally, this is a wonderful morning treat.
