Gather up your reusable bags because a Farmer’s Market is coming to Clement Street!
Today was the final hurdle to the market happening – needed SFMTA approval of the street closures and bus reroutings that are required to accommodate the Sunday market. We got word via Foggy Notion’s Twitter that everything was approved at the SFMTA meeting:

That means the first market will take place on Sunday, June 23 (yes, in just 1 week!). The market will be run by the Agricultural Institute of Marin (AIM), which currently runs other markets at Stonestown, Civic Center, and in other Bay Area locations.
The Clement Street farmer’s market will feature a wide range of local products, including eggs, milk, cheeses, meats, plus children activities, and live music. The market will also provide matching dollars for “food stamp” users, and additional bike parking.
This initial approval is for a 6 week pilot of the market, which will run on Clement Street every Sunday between 2nd and 4th Avenues from 9am until 2pm.
