Join this multicultural celebration of community building each Saturday, 9am–2pm at the corner of Shattuck Ave and 46th Street in the Temescal Business District.
Now in its 8th year, the Freedom Farmers’ Marketplace is a multi-cultural market bringing Black farmers and other socially disadvantaged farmers to the Bay Area for a direct-to-consumer selling experience.
On market day, stop by to purchase fresh and affordable California-grown non-GMO and chemical-free fruits and vegetables. Enjoy events like the crowder pea shell off, watermelon eating, sweet potato pie tasting, healthy soul food demos, poetry contest, dance off, R&B, jazz, and blues music, checkers, chess, and dominoes, and always, a great chance to build community.
By supporting farmers’ markets, you support a local economy and healthier sustainable agroecosystem. Farms-to-Grow Inc. believes that farmers’ markets are strategies communities can use to empower themselves to eat healthier.
