6 Best Baby & Kid Clothing Shops in San Francisco

6 Best Baby & Kid Clothing Shops in San Francisco

For grown ups, San Francisco is home to a nice variety of fashion brands that have risen in popularity over the last decade–for example, Allbirds, ThirdLove, Poshmark, and Stitch Fix to name a few. 

But when you live in San Francisco, shopping for clothes for your child can require a little research to find what you need locally. 

There are roughly 33,000 children under age 5 who live in San Francisco County according to the U.S. Census Bureau, but you’ll find the city doesn’t have a huge selection to shop for your little one. 

While it’s easy to head to big box retailers and department store chains, there is something to be said for supporting your locally owned small businesses in San Francisco too. 

Sadly, in the last decade several San Francisco children clothing store small businesses have closed down. This makes it even more important to support the remaining stores that are open. 

Having said that, there are a few hidden gems scattered throughout the city, some of which have been open for decades and serving the San Francisco community and others opened only recently. So before you head out to the South Bay to shop at a local mall, instead check out our round up of some of the best baby and kid clothing shops in San Francisco.
