Delicious radishesThe Noe Valley Farmer's Market is located at 3861 24th Street, between Sanchez and Vicksburg Streets and is held every Saturday from 8 AM to 1 PM. It's a smaller than the other two Saturday farmer's markets - Alemany and Ferry Building - but if you don't need a lot of things, it's a good place to go to pick up some basics without dealing with crowds. It's also convenient to the 24th Street Cheese Store, PlumpJack Wines, and Chocolate Covered. Here's what we saw this week ...
