We missed the Little Italy Farmers’ Market on Saturday so decided to get our week of produce and vegetables at the much bigger Hillcrest Market. $36 dollars and we left with two bouquets of fresh flowers, carrots, onions, tomatoes, lemon cucumber, broccoli, lettuce, strawberries, cantaloupe and baby squash. A cornucopia of fresh organic fruits, vegetables and flowers for the entire week.
We usually go to the Little Italy market, even though it is smaller, because I can park at the office. Also, you can see the harbor from every vantage point in the market. It’s gorgeous. However, the variety at Hillcrest is superior. Indeed, friends have told me the Hillcrest Market’s diversity is superior to San Francisco’s largest Farmers’ Market. Parking is surprisingly easy at the Hillcrest Market. I have always managed a spot only a couple blocks from the market and it has never taken me more than 5-10 minutes to park.
