We love your pets, however, California law prohibits them in the food section at the market unless they are certified service animals. If you bring your pet to the market (allowed in the artisan area), please bring a friend to walk them on the adjacent sidewalk and/or let them play in the SoFA dog park a block away. 

We like to think everything about the Market is pretty special. But if you are looking for deals on fresh, local fruits, vegetables and other goodies, look no further.

Help keep the Market earth-friendly by using the compost and recycle bins.

The vendors are doing their part, too. They use biodegradable bags and compostable plates and silverware.
