Alemany Farmer's Market, 1953

Image from San Francisco Public Library's time-travelicious online photo archive. Photo taken on August 12, 1953. The concrete stalls were built in 1951; except for the cars, the market looks more or less the same today.


Original caption:


"TEN YEARS OLD--The teeming Farmers Market celebrates its 10th birthday today, with a record of having handled 118,000 tons of crops since its founding. Low fees from farmers selling their produce here support the market, at Alemany-blvd near Bayshore-blvd, and paid for the concrete sales docks and wooden shelter shown here."
