We’re made up of smart, friendly people who feel it’s our responsibility to take care of the neighborhoods we live in. And we want to give everyone the chance to build a financially stronger future – because together is the only way to step up to better.

Oh, we are also a very stable financially sound 69-year-old credit union with $650 million in assets and 43,000 neighbors (Members). We serve our neighbors in nine counties – Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Mateo, San Francisco, Monterey, and Alameda counties in California – and New Hanover, Pender, and Brunswick counties in North Carolina.

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.
