The SF Market
About The SF Market
The SF Market is San Francisco’s wholesale produce market.
Home to 28 independently-owned merchant businesses, The SF Market is the region’s destination for the widest selection of fresh produce. The SF Market’s critical food infrastructure connects urban and rural food economies, moving hundreds of thousands of pounds of produce each day. The only non-profit produce market of its scale, The SF Market is uniquely positioned to grow impact across the food system, from expanding opportunities for farmers to improving food access for our neighbors here in the Bay Area. Market merchants lease space on The SF Market to be a part of the vibrant ecosystem of food business on the Market all in one convenient San Francisco location.
Over 1,000 workers see the sun rise each morning at our Bayview-Hunter’s Point 23-acre campus dedicated to food infrastructure. A designated legacy business and a true San Francisco institution, The SF Market opened in 1963 with a 50-year ground lease from the City of San Francisco. In 2013, The SF Market renewed their partnership with the city under a new 60-year lease. In 2015 the Market launched a major reinvestment project to improve and sustain existing infrastructure for our merchant tenants. Through the successful implementation of this Reinvestment Project, the expansion of our community programs, and the continued support of our Market Merchants, The SF Market envisions a vibrant, thriving and sustainable food system that will feed our region for years to come.
The mission of the San Francisco Market Corporation is to link the produce and food communities of San Francisco and beyond, through the successful operation and development of The SF Market.
The vision of the San Francisco Market Corporation is to make The SF Market a vibrant, thriving and sustainable food center.
