The mission of the San Francisco Market Corporation is to link the produce and food communities of SF and beyond, through the successful operation and development of the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market.

Description

About the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market

The San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market (SFWPM or "Market"), located in the Bayview Hunters Point community, is one of the largest, multi-tenanted produce wholesale and distribution facility in the US. The Market spans over 20 acres, including 485,000 square feet of warehouse and logistics space. The Market provides critical food infrastructure and services to wholesale and distribution businesses that store, aggregate, and distribute fresh produce to businesses across the Bay Area.

The San Francisco Market Corporation is the governing body of the Market. The mission of the San Francisco Market Corporation is to link the produce and food communities of SF and beyond, through the successful operation and development of the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market.

It is an exciting time at the Market; we have embarked on a multi-year Reinvestment Project to upgrade and expand our facility. The first phase of the Reinvestment Project included the transition of the Market to a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and the construction of an 82,000 sq ft LEED-Gold warehouse. As we are investing and planning for the future of the Market, we continue to focus our efforts on increasing the impact of our program, which include: local job generation, support for local farmers and growers, and maximizing food recovery opportunities.
