About Us / Alemany Farmers' Market History: The Alemany Farmers’ Market was the first farmers’ market in California. The Victory Garden Council and regional farmers initially established a farmers’ market as a wartime measure to provide an outlet for surplus and distressed crops from neighboring counties. Over the years, the Alemany Farmers’ Market has continuously supported the small, family farmers of California. When the market was founded in 1943, San Francisco was full of Victory Gardens and the ethic of “eating local” was commonplace out of necessity.
