My World #131: To Farmers Market We Go

I was telling the hubby how we haven’t been to the Farmers Market this summer and the season is about to end. So we made a point to go to one of the biggest farmers market around. The The Alemany Farmers’ Market in Alemany Blvd in SF is the oldest farmers’ market in the Bay Area. It was started by John Brucato in the 1940s. It offers some of the lowest farmers’ market prices in the Bay Area as well as specialty items specific to Asian cuisine.

However, not early risers on the weekend we arrived just in time that the stalls were closing. It was good timing in a way because most of the veggies we got were marked down even further.

The walls of the stalls are painted in murals.

I can go to the farmers market and only leave with tomatoes and basil in my basket and I’m happy.

Always looking forward to the multicolored bell peppers.

I noted that this time around there are more stalls/trucks of prepared food. In addition to the usual Mexican/Hispanic fare, there is also a pizza stall.

Hope you enjoyed going to the Farmers Market with me. Share your world at MY WORLD.
