    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.

    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.

    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.

    Try oysters from Pt. Reyes Oyster Farm. $10 for a dozen! So fresh you could smell the ocean. Best of all they're local :)

    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.

    Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market is better known, but chefs prefer this Saturday market for oysters on the half shell and the curry crepes from Malaysian Lacy Crepes. Read more

    Good produce without the crazy prices. Make sure you walk around to find the best priced stalls as some farmers just seem overpriced.

    Give back to the community and volunteer at Alemany. When you give, you also receive... much good will, along with a bountiful harvest of fresh produce. Philanthropy never tasted so good. Read more

    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.

    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.
