Heart of the City Farmers Market is a uniquely independent, farmer-operated, nonprofit farmers market located year round on Sundays and Wednesdays in San Francisco’s United Nations Plaza. Many aging and poor residents rely on it for access to fresh and cheap produce. The market opens on Sundays 7am to 5pm and Wednesdays 7am to 5:30pm year round, rain or shine. Heart of the City has been a leader in serving vulnerable communities by accepting EBT, EatSF, WIC (including Fruit and Vegetable checks), Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons, and now VeggieRX coupons in partnership with Fresh Approach.
