Farmers markets are all the rage these days — there are over 450 in California alone. People shop at them to support local farmers or to buy sustainable produce. Farmers markets tend to offer more varieties of a given fruit or vegetable — it's possible for a farmer to sell 8 or 10 different kinds of apples, each with a distinct flavor! And shopping at a farmers market is far more educational and interactive than stopping by your local Safeway.

San Francisco's Ferry Building is surely the city's most famous farmers market, and it has become a tourist attraction in its own right. It has farmers markets with up to 80 growers on Saturdays and Tuesdays.

Great list. I'd add the Castro farmer's market (Noe @ Market) on Wednesday afternoons.
