Whoever said that eating healthily is boring and costs too much clearly hasn’t been to the Castro Farmers’ Market.
Every Wednesday throughout the season, March 13, 2013 to December 18, 2013, Noe Street (at Market, near Hot Cookie) will be teeming with fresh produce, flowers and treats (free samples, anyone?) from over 25 farms around the Bay Area. Indulge in plump organic blackberries and raspberries from Berry Licious, pristine California olive oil from Calolea Olive Oil/Honey Bears Farm, oh-so-much cheese from Achandinha Cheese Company, and “the best smoked fish you’ve ever had” from Cap’n Mike’s Holy Smoke.
Not only will the Castro Farmers’ Market give you the ultimate produce-induced food-gasm, but your ears will get a tickle as well. You’ll have the pleasure of listening to live music from a different artist each week! Castro, San Francisco will be flooded with sounds from Apryll Gilbert (3/27), Suzanne Holland (4/3) and Keenan Webster (4/10) in the upcoming weeks (check the Pacific Coast Farmers’ Association website for more artists and dates: www.pcfma.com/market_home.php?market_id=64).
Whether it’s your first time or you’ve been every week, there’s always something new to see. “This farmers’ market only continues to expand and improve. I love seeing new vendors here, and recently with the earlier nights — there's something quite lovely about seeing a dimly lit farmer's market bubbling with life, music and radiant produce,” said Yelper Jessica T., San Francisco.
The Castro Farmer’s market brings California’s best produce directly to you. It’s your one-stop shop for all things nutritious and delicious in your beloved Gay San Francisco!

We know that San Francisco’s weather can be pretty bi-polar — but luckily for us, this vivacious farmers’ market is rain or shine!)
