Mission Bay Farmers’ Market Goes on Hiatus
By Robert Hood on December 09, 2019
Due to challenges with ongoing construction in the neighborhood, the Mission Bay Farmers’ Market will go on hiatus. The last market will be held Wednesday, Dec. 18 from 10am to 2pm.
The Mission Bay Farmers’ Market is one of eight markets operating under the umbrella of the Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association. In 2016, the Haight Ashbury farmers market, which also operated under PCFMA, closed due to low attendance.
According to a statement from the PCFMA, attendance at the Mission Bay Farmers’ Market has been dropping and producers attending the market have been struggling. With further construction scheduled in the neighborhood, the PCFMA made the decision to put the market on hiatus and will reevaluate the situation at the end of 2020.
Residents of Mission Bay will have the opportunity to purchase from many of the same vendors at the Thrive City Farmers’ Market held Sundays from 8am to 1pm at the Chase Center. The Farmers’ Market at Parnassus will also continue every Wednesday from 10am to 3pm.
