Enjoy fresh fruits, flowers, jams and jellies, vegetables, cheese, fungi, eggs, and nuts from this uniquely independent, farmer-operated, nonprofit farmers' market in San Francisco's United Nations Plaza.

Set against a grand backdrop of the San Francisco City Hall, Heart of the City Farmers' Market started in 1981, and is open year-round, rain or shine, including holidays. The market has suffered its share of hardship recently due to wildfires and the pandemic, but vendors remain committed to providing fresh food to the neighborhood. Known as the most affordable farmers’ market in San Francisco, Heart of the City attracts customers from all over the Bay Area.

Editor's Note: Please wear a mask and keep a physical distance of at least six feet while riding the trains or at an in-person event. Before you travel on BART, use our Trip Planner to get estimated arrival and departure times. See BART's 15-step plan to safely welcome back riders here.

When you're done filling your bags with local produce, wander down and relax by the fountain at the Art Institute of California. Visit the other end of the market to admire the statue of South American general Simón Bolivar mounted atop his steed or the gilded dome of San Francisco City Hall (which some call the Taj Mahal because of its 24-karat gold-leaf finish).

Aside from serving BART riders, the Heart of the City Farmers' Market takes pride in bringing nutritious food choices to low-income residents. The farmers' market accepts EBT, WIC, Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons and VeggieRX.

Bring an extra shopping bag or two. It's hard to fill only one given the range of quality food on display.

Let's talk food.
