Central Market could be considered the heart of San Francisco, not only because it’s right at the city’s geographic core but also because of its emotional resonance. Central Market is home to City Hall, the building that comes to mind immediately when we think of San Francisco’s groundbreaking fight for same-sex marriage. You could say that it is the birthplace of legal equality. Each June, City Hall also hosts its own swanky VIP Pride. The nearby Civic Center Plaza is actually where the Pride Parade culminates, so you’ll find thousands of LGBT people and allies coming together to watch live performances, listen to rousing speeches, and continue the celebration, of course.
