Farmers Markets Bring Life to Cities

A simple farmer’s market can light up a neighborhood by providing fresh food, supporting local business, encouraging a sense of play,  and inspire with art and music by closing down the street to cars, and giving it to people. Expanding the use and capability of a street with creativity and a focus around people creates scenes shown above.

This farmers market on Clement Street in the Inner Richmond District of San Francisco is simple and only closes two blocks down to provide a tremendous positive impact on public life.
