Audit Committee Member at The SF Market

About The SF Market

As the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market, The SF Market makes things grow – for farmers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, restaurants, and communities. Home to 30 merchants in a single vibrant San Francisco marketplace, our diverse range of produce businesses supply the widest, best-tasting selection of fresh produce available in Northern California. The SF Market is a platform for critical access and scale – providing the food infrastructure, programs and relationships that help hundreds of farmers, Bay Area food businesses and their communities thrive.


The SF Market is San Francisco’s original – and only – wholesale produce market. As a pillar of the Bay Area’s food economy and a nonprofit social enterprise, we create jobs for over 500 people and foster efficiency, diversity and innovation. The SF Market moves millions of pounds of fresh produce through the Bay Area, occupies 485,000 sq. ft. of food-focused warehouse and logistics space in San Francisco’s Bayview Hunter’s Point neighborhood, and has plans to upgrade facilities to support new food businesses and an engaged community. The SF Market’s focus on growth extends to the entire food system – with programs directed toward local farmer partnerships, food recovery, and healthy retail policy.
