SoMa Farmers Market

Ah, South Main. This little sliver of our city has seen some big changes in the past few years. Overhauling the strip of Main Street just south of I-630 has brought new shops, new eats and new life to the neighborhood.

My favorite way to spend Saturday mornings is with breakfast at Community Bakery, the first place to greet you as you cross over the highway into SoMa. The steady stream of people, pastries and piping hot coffee can keep me occupied for hours, and it often does.

Just a short stroll down the block, shops like Electric Ghost and Moxy Modern Mercantile provide the perfect place to peruse unique items you won't find anywhere else in the city. Tack on a slice from Raduno Brick Oven, a scoop from Loblolly Creamery, a show at South on Main and a nightcap at Rock Town Distillery's new digs and congratulations — you've successfully spent a flawless day in SoMa.

We asked our readers to share photos of what they love most about life in SoMa, and they didn't disappoint. See for yourself.
