This is another of the peculiarities of San Francisco. You can go directly from the city to the countryside in certain places. Since the early 1980s, many city dwellers have converted urban land into farms. All with organic agriculture and sustainable techniques.
Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday morning, they come to the pier to sell their products. This is where the wave of kale worship was born. Depending on the season, you will find melons or apples, vegetables galore, especially fragrant herbs, eggs and, in season, many varieties of mushrooms. A group of 40 producers banded together to create the dairy cooperative Cow Girl.
Do not hesitate to taste their stilton, cheddar, and even their Roquefort! On Saturday, all the chefs of San Francisco head to the market, which is also a gathering place for local food trucks. Feeling hungry? Have a taco or a burger, but beware of the voracious appetite of the seagulls!
