The Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture is dedicated to cultivating a sustainable food system through the operation of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and its educational programs.
We are a tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation organized in 1994 to educate urban consumers about sustainable agriculture and to create links between urban dwellers and local farmers. We have managed the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market since 1999.
A food system is the inter-relationship of agricultural systems, their economic, social, cultural, and technological support systems, and systems of food distribution and consumption. A sustainable food system uses practices that are environmentally sound, humane, economically viable, and socially just.
CUESA’s educational programs include our Market to Table events, farm tours, weekly electronic newsletter, lectures and panel discussions, educational displays, and more.
The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market is a certified farmers’ market world-renowned for the delicious local products it showcases. We run markets on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at the historic Ferry Building at the base of Market Street in San Francisco.
