Stockton Street

Stockton Street is a hub of activity in San Francisco, California, especially for Chinatown. It is the main street for shopping and businesses for those who live in Chinatown. The street runs north to south beginning at Market Street, passing through Union Square, and on towards North Beach. It ends at Beach Street near Pier 39. Several stores have their homes on Stockton including Macy's West Flagship and Neiman Marcus.

Stockton Chinatown is most notable as the least expensive place to find fresh produce and meats. Many of the stores offer live seafood and dried herbs. A few of the shops include Hop Hing Ginseng, Kowloon Market, Louie's Produce, Fruit City, and Luen Sing Fish Market.

Stockton Street Tunnel runs below Stockton Street near Nob Hill and Chinatown. It is an easy way for foot traffic to get around these areas, without being near traffic. Union Square has numerous attractions, which is another draw to some of the areas of Stockton Street. Since Union Square is a major shopping district it is easy to find parking on Stockton Street and get into Union Square. Pier 39 is yet another shopping mecca which attracts visitors to the end of Stockton Street.
