Marina Farmers Market?

There used to be one at Fillmore & Chestnut on Saturdays. Any idea if it's coming back? If not, any other suggestions nearby? I know the Ferry Building has a huge one, but I loved being able to walk over to Fillmore/Chestnut on Saturday mornings for coffee, pastry and something tasty to put on the menu for dinner.

    To say it's in flux is an understatement. Sounds like it's not coming back on Saturdays -- I watched a board of supes meeting the other day with lots of back and forth from the community about when/where to have it.

    If you're looking for a Saturday market that's not the FPFM in San Francisco, your choices that I know of are the Fillmore market, the Park Merced market, and the Noe Valley market.

      There has been a continuing spat between promoters of the market on Saturdays Fillmore and Chestnut and those favoring a return of Tuesdays on Steiner between Chestnut and Lombard. The last I heard, the Tuesday group may have won their case and there may be a 10:00am-4:00pm market on Steiner beginning early July. Let's hope something can get going before the season ends! I miss having a local market.
