Get those totes bags ready: tomorrow marks opening day for the 2014 Upper Haight Farmers Market, hosted by the Pacific Coast Farmers Market Association. From 3pm–7pm every Wednesday 'til October 29th (rain or shine), you'll be able to get your share of fresh goods and produce at Waller and Stanyan.

Tomorrow's opening day festivities include a 4:30pm ribbon cutting, face painting, balloon animals, fresh goods and produce, a photo booth and live music.

Ashley Weidman, the PCFMA market manager for the Upper Haight market, said that even though enrollment is still developing, they're expecting an average of around 25 vendors during peak season, and that there are hopes of landing even more.

Produce available on opening day will include fresh delta asparagus, organic dates, organic strawberries, olive oil, fresh local honey, olives, organic nuts, organic dried fruit, and tender spring greens.

Other goods and food available will include packaged Indian food and samosas, fresh juice and nut milk, freshly caught fish, hummus and gluten-free baked goods. There will also be coffee (to drink or beans by the pound), crepes, and rotisserie chicken.

And with rain expected to taper off by tomorrow afternoon, you may be able to leave your rain boots and umbrella at home.
