We accidentally stumbled upon Union Square Park (we’re not usually that far downtown). It’s a very picturesque area and very nice. We happened to pass through on a Friday and they had a nice farmers market set up (I understand the market is year round on Fridays and Saturdays). The market had plants, fresh produce, baked goods, cheese, and alcohol. Really cool to walk through. We even came back on Saturday to check it out again. We got some great goat cheese from a little stand called LynnHaven and some moonshine from Full Moonshine. So cool. Will definitely be back!

While walking from Midtown to the financial district, we passed by union Square and visited the local fresh market, where you can buy honey, veggies, nuts of all kinds and baked goods. We enjoyed taking a look at what was on sale, and the square itself is wide and filled with plants. As mentioned by others, there were indeed several homeless people gathering on benches, which made finding one a bit difficult, so we went to a nearby Bakery. The place is,however,pleasant and especially during the weekends it bustles with life.

It’s a lovely park to walk around and the market is something you should check out. It’s quite easy to get to-there’s a subway station at one end. It’s easy to spend a afternoon enjoying the park and the neighborhood

Visited all the sites, Alcatraz, golden gate, Monterey, Carmel and Yosemite. All the trips and sites were out of this world and amazing as for the city of San Francisco- what a dump. The homeless situation is out of control due to liberal laws. Do not stay around Union Square! We stayed for 6 nights and witnessed 4 robberies. Each morning urine all over the streets, food and homeless in each shop doorway. I have never been anywhere and seen homeless people sleeping in all of the designer shop doorways Gucci, Jimmy Choo etc. It was an eye opener much dirtier than New York back streets. This was a place I had dreamed of visiting for years and bitterly disappointed.
