bikes and sf fresh produce

05 November, 2010

i'll admit that i'm all about local farmers market's and i'm obsessed with fresh produce. i love seasonal produce that was just picked and contains an abundance of ripe flavors, juices, and vitamins. not only that, most produce sold those days are organic and freshly picked that morning and only traveled from 2 hours away, i love that especially. i may sound a bit off my rocker but living a sustainable lifestyle doesn't require me to just commute by bike but it also calls for eating, dressing, and grooming sustainable. yesterday's sf gate published a little article about biking to "Mission Community Market: Bike to fresh produce"  one of my favorite farmers markets on 22nd and Bartlett Thursdays 4-8pm. Another favorite of mine is Noe Valley's farmers market which is close to home that meets every Saturday 8am-1pm.
other sf farmers markets are Castro Farmers' Market 3-7 p.m. Wed., Market and Noe streets, Alemany 7 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sat., Fillmore Farmers' Market 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Sat., Fillmore and O'Farrell streets, the Divisadero Farmers' Market 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sun., Divisadero and Grove streets, or the famous Ferry Building 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tues., Thurs.; 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Sat which has bike parking provided by SFBC.
 if you bike there, make sure to have panniers, a back pack, a basket etc. they can get heavy carrying uphill too. have fun biking and fooding sf local style!
