The Mission Community Market — an open-air farmers' market that regularly features local farmers, small neighborhood businesses, community programs, and the occasional live-music act — is expected to return Thursday for the first time in 2021.

The Mission Community Market has grown into one of the Mission District's (and city’s) most sought-after farmers' markets since debuting in 2010. But in 2018, the market began being operated by CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture), the local nonprofit that runs the Ferry Plaza market which is dedicated to cultivating a sustainable food system through access to opportunities and financial resources.

Hosted at 22nd and Bartlett streets, the market is operated on Thursdays from March to November. The 2021 season kickoff of the market is happening from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m Thursday, March 11, and will feature over two dozen vendors — who will be selling everything from artisanal pet supplies to plant starters.

Also: the farmers' market accepts EBT (CalFresh/food stamps) from all patrons. Customers who are using EBT can double their dollars (up to $10, per market day) through the Market Match program, which offers free market coins redeemable only for fruits and vegetables. And to ensure a COVID-19-safe shopping environment, all vendors and market-goers are expected to wear masks and practice proper social distancing; there will also be stations to sanitize and wash your hands; customers are encouraged to “shop with their eyes” and not grab nor feel on-sale produce.
