People tend to check in during these times:
Farmers Market on Saturdays, Flea Market on Sundays...
Get here by 7 to get parking
The place to find the best fresh produce at the best prices.
Fresh Chili only spring to fall
Get here early for the best selections. Wonderful, seasonal fruit and vegetables, as well as eggs and fresh bread.
Good prices. Great produce. Bad parking. Just be patient.
Get cash before arriving to the Farmers Market. Small bills are best for most stalls although the pre-made food booths add up. Most vendors accept cash only. There are no stores or ATMs nearby.
Pay attention to the traffic directors. They'll let you know if there are parking spaces in the middle section. Drive super slow because people are distracted and walking everywhere.
Awesome flea market on Sundays!
Excellent market they have everything
The Alemany Farmers' Market is known as "the people's market' for its abundant produce at affordable prices. If you're shopping for Asian vegetables, this is your scene.
Arrive early...easier parking and better fresher selection of produce! Always remember the early bird catchs the worm!!
Good mix of fruit, veggies, and people!
Strawberries in season
Get Pomelos for $0.50 each. They aren't the biggest ones but still worth it!
prepared food vendors and produce at great prices. what's not to like?
Early birds get the best pickings.
look for the oyster vendor and pick up oranges from twin girls' farm!
Pizza wasn't worth the 20 min wait, sorry!
Forget to bring cash? There's no ATM, but the Bolanis will give you cash back if you buy something with your debit card!
Come on Sundays, when it becomes the Alemany Flea Market. Tons of great loot and a nice Panorama Bakery stand for fresh loaves, foccacias and pastries.
The first one... And still the best... Summer fruit is SO sweet...
Be sure to reward yourself with a trip to pick up some Hummus, Tamales or Brick Oven Pizza.
Bernal Heights' Alemany Farmers' Market is home to the oldest extant farmers' markets in the US, operating every Saturday since August 4, 1947.
This is my second favorite place to go.
Stop by bryants booth in space 106....great prices...then ask him where his mom is....they both give some great deals.
Don't be afraid to haggle!
No ATM here bring lots of ones.
Great deals on fresh produce. Come here early before they run out!
Go visit the Hummus Guy, hands down best vendor there. He'll make your morning.
Try the spinach bolani!
Get the ugly shitake mushrooms. Only slightly blemished for a fraction of the price.
Try oysters from Pt. Reyes Oyster Farm. $10 for a dozen! So fresh you could smell the ocean. Best of all they're local :)
Good place to get flowers !
Regier peaches and Phan farm purple yams *OMG*
avoid the traffic at the entrance of the Alemany Farmer's Market by going up Putnam and turning right at Tompkin's to enter parking lot through the back.
Same great produce as the ferry building at a fraction of the cost.
Try Good Food Caters "New BLT" if you are a pork belly fan
Be sure to see the pretty Afghan girl at her dips+spreads+breads stand - tons of samples and great food
Fresh Balut is available for those daring enough.
Awesome place to buy fresh organic vegis and fruits. Summer is much better because they have plenty different kinds.
there is a unique musical act here involving wooden cat puppets and a ukelele.
Do not miss the perpared food vendors: tons of great Mexican food, BBQ, crepes, pizza and the all important Afghani bread-and-spread with free samples galore served by a beautiful hustler.
Get a pulled pork sandwich from Dante at good food catering. It will blow your mind.
