  • Bernal Heights' Alemany Farmers' Market is home to the oldest extant farmers' markets in the US, operating every Saturday since August 4, 1947.
  • Get Pomelos for $0.50 each. They aren't the biggest ones but still worth it!

  • Be patient.
  • 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.
