Upper Haight Farmers' Market Opens Today
Where: Waller Street at Stanyan Street
When: Wed. April 4, 3-7 p.m.
The rundown: Bigger is usually better, and this year's Farmers' Market in the Upper Haight offers just that. Stefan Robinson, Pacific Coast Farmers' Market Association marketing promotions manager, told SFoodie that this season's opening day is expected to draw an impressive, turnout much like last Sunday's Glen Park Farmers' Market opening.
"More people are using the Farmers' Market as more of a grocery store rather than a place to hang out," said Robinson.
To make it a more user friendly experience, chef Mario Hernandez will be hosting tours and Q&A's of top produce picks. Tomatero Farm and the bakery Vive Le Tarte will present new organic offerings. As weather improves and more sun shines through, Robinson says more vendors will appear at the Farmers' Markets. Slated next for the season opening is the Mission Bay Farmers' Market next Wed., April 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
