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.
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.
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.
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.
Visit for all your produce needs but most importantly, stop by the naan & chutney food booth and let the guy who operates it feed you full of his delicious warez
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.
Come here to get all sorts of fresh produce. Very friendly vendors. Much better than the crowded and touristy Ferry Building farmer's market. Cheaper too.
Get here early for the best selections. Wonderful, seasonal fruit and vegetables, as well as eggs and fresh bread.
Try oysters from Pt. Reyes Oyster Farm. $10 for a dozen! So fresh you could smell the ocean. Best of all they're local :)
Bernal Heights' Alemany Farmers' Market is home to the oldest extant farmers' markets in the US, operating every Saturday since August 4, 1947.
Awesome place to buy fresh organic vegis and fruits. Summer is much better because they have plenty different kinds.
Arrive early...easier parking and better fresher selection of produce! Always remember the early bird catchs the worm!!
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.
Stop by bryants booth in space 106....great prices...then ask him where his mom is....they both give some great deals.
Forget to bring cash? There's no ATM, but the Bolanis will give you cash back if you buy something with your debit card!
Be sure to reward yourself with a trip to pick up some Hummus, Tamales or Brick Oven Pizza.
Be sure to see the pretty Afghan girl at her dips+spreads+breads stand - tons of samples and great food
Go visit the Hummus Guy, hands down best vendor there. He'll make your morning.
prepared food vendors and produce at great prices. what's not to like?
Get the ugly shitake mushrooms. Only slightly blemished for a fraction of the price.
Get a pulled pork sandwich from Dante at good food catering. It will blow your mind.
there is a unique musical act here involving wooden cat puppets and a ukelele.
Good prices. Great produce. Bad parking. Just be patient.
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
Try a pulled pork sandwich from Dontaye at the Good Food Catering stand. So delicious!
Get Pomelos for $0.50 each. They aren't the biggest ones but still worth it!
Fresh Balut is available for those daring enough.
Great deals on fresh produce. Come here early before they run out!
look for the oyster vendor and pick up oranges from twin girls' farm!
Egg vendor, hummus guy, and all the veggie vendord
The first one... And still the best... Summer fruit is SO sweet...
Farmers Market on Saturdays, Flea Market on Sundays...
The place to find the best fresh produce at the best prices.
