The SF Underground Farmers Market is a venue where you can taste and purchase the food that is being produced in backyards and home kitchens in the Bay Area.

To sell at a farmers market, you need to produce your wares in a commercial kitchen. This is an impossible expense for many, so the underground farmers market helps fellow producers gain exposure whether they are making food for passion, camaraderie or as a way to test the waters before launching a full-fledged business.

These are veterans, people who’ve been making their products for years, but only able to share them with friends. The Market gives them a venue to share with the whole SF food community. If you are interested in becoming a vendor, click here to read more.

Conceived of and produced by forageSF, this is a market, and a live show, all rolled into one. Think a farmers market, but at night, with music and drinks.

To attend the market, you need to be a (free) member of the SF Underground Market, you can sign up here.
