Jack London Square Farmers Market
Oakland’s Jack London Square Farmers Market, known as the “vibrant waterfront marketplace for Bay Area families” since 1989, takes place every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., year-round, rain or shine. Over 40 vendors provide options for cheese, smoked fish, oil, berries, hummus, Latin American comfort food, handcrafted soaps, and more. Additionally, you can find a cornhole contest, kids’ crafts program to decorate a take-home tote bag, and a summer cocktails party. Check out their calendar for more events.
Ferry Plaza Farmers Market
Started in 1993, the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market links urban dwellers with local farmers. Today, the market offers high-quality products from sustainable producers, ranging from bread and sprouts to honey and cheesecake at the San Francisco Ferry Building. Here’s the crazy part: it happens three times a week — Saturday (8 a.m. to 2 p.m.), Tuesday (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), Thursday (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) — year round, rain or shine. Saturday has over 100 vendors whereas Tuesday and Thursday have 20 and 15, respectively. Find the full list of vendors here. You’ll never run out of fresh produce!
Mission Community Market
The Mission Community Market is the newest of the three, founded only 8 years ago. The open-air marketplace hosts farmers, small local businesses, and community programs every Thursday from 4 to 8 p.m. in Mission neighborhood. Here you can find fresh pasta, organic vegetables, cut flowers, porchetta sandwiches, and kimchi!
After shopping for all this fresh produce, you’re going to need a kitchen, utensils, and pots and pans to make a beautiful meal. Each of our coliving homes in San Francisco provides these necessary amenities. Book a tour at one of our homes close to these markets!
