If the location was new, the scene was familiar ― balloons and baby
beets, strawberries and strollers, with a jam band trying to sound
festive and customers lugging canvas totes sprouting kale.
to regional manager Elizabeth Howe, vendors making their first
San Francisco appearance at the Upper Haight market are Holding Ranch, which sells grass-fed beef and lamb, free-range chickens and eggs, and Berkshire pork, as well as Organic Pastures, a raw milk dairy producer located near Fresno. Other familiar names: jam maker Blue Chair Fruit, cookie masters Applebaum Bakery, stone-fruit grower Kashiwase Farms [FB page], Scream Sorbet, and Swanton Berry Farm. Next week, the market should grow to 24 vendors, and there's room for more expansion.
Upper Haight Farmers' Market Stanyan at Waller, Weds. 4-8 p.m., April 28-Oct. 27
