In the title compound, C(17)H(15)FO(2)S, the 3-fluoro-phenyl ring makes a dihedral angle of 86.89 (4)° with the mean plane of the benzofuran fragment. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked by weak inter-molecular C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds. The crystal structure also exhibits a slipped π-π inter-action between the furan rings of neighbouring mol-ecules [centroid-centroid distance = 3.719 (2) Å, inter-planar distance = 3.475 (2) Å and slippage = 1.325 Å].
