San Francisco Council of District Merchants Associations - Home
Over the past sixty two years, the Council has distinguished itself by drawing together the disparate merchants associations in the neighborhood commercial districts of the City. Together, they have advocated for street lighting, traffic control, parking, and legislation to improve the business climate in the City.

Our members represent a variety of local businesses including an eclectic mix of food and drink, salons, spas, healers, shopping, schools, business services, entertainment and more. Our Mission is to protect, preserve, and promote small businesses in San Francisco.

The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to enter into a partnership with the San Francisco Council of District Merchants, one of San Francisco’s most trusted resources for small businesses in the Bay Area. This partnership will allow both organizations to extend their outreach into the ever-growing small business community, as well as provide more robust resources for small businesses and offer exclusive event opportunities for networking, knowledge enhancement, and more.

Mayor Ed Lee hosted Sweepstakes Prize Winners and invited guests in the International Room in his office at City Hall to award the prizes for the first annual November 2 Remember Sweepstakes.
