(7/5/15 Update) Many neighbors have continued to complain about low vendor turn out for the weekly Farmers Market. According to market manager Jeff Jelsma, there aren't enough customers coming out each week which deters vendors from making an effort to show up.
"We are at an impasse with the market. Customers will not come to a small market, and producers will not come to a market with low customer counts. We have attempted to bring more producers out, to little to no avail. We hope to continue providing the market to the Upper Haight community, but our farmers need more community support!"
Show your support for local produce by showing up to the farmers market. Maybe if more people show up, more vendors will too.
(3/15/15) The Upper Haight Farmers' Market opens on Wednesday, April 15 this year!
As a result of a recent community survey, the Upper Haight Farmers’ Market is happy to be able to provide even more organic options this year! The market will welcome several new vendors, as well as favorite producers from past seasons. There will be a constantly changing array of seasonal California produce available, including vibrant citrus, juicy apricots, and succulent strawberries. The market will also feature locally-grown dahlias, locally-raised grass fed meats, and locally-made baked goods (even gluten-free) and vegan granola. There will also be live music, kids’ arts and crafts, and fun games for all ages.
Some of this year's vendors will include Wholeness Farms, Gauchito Hill Farm, Aztec Dahlias (in June), Fly Girl Farm, Blue House Farm, L&M Farms (grass fed beef), Rainbow Orchards, Schetewitz Family Farms, Tomatero Organic Farm, Cipponeri Family Farms, and Triple Delight Blueberries. Per the survey results, vendors will be featuring fresh vegetables and fruits, stone and winter fruits, apples and apple cider, and nuts.
The market, located at Stanyan and Waller, is open every Wednesday from3 p.m. to 7 p.m., and runs through October 28.
