The Underground Farmers Market Has A Home!
We’ve got some vendors, booked some music, and even got some homebrew lined up! It’s happening this Thursday, December 17th, at 2755 Bryant Street
There is going to be a lot of great stuff: jams, pies, edible garden boxes, wild mushrooms, acorn flour, homemade sarsaparilla, Jewish deli fare and homemade empanadas.
The underground farmers market is a venue where you can taste and purchase the food that is being made in the kitchens of our fair city. Call us voyeuristic, but this is a chance to peek into others’ kitchens and share in their bounty. Pies, jams, sarsaparilla to feast on – all by “suggested donation.”
To sell at a farmers market, you need to produce your wares in a commercial kitchen. This is an impossible expense for many of us, so the underground farmers market is about helping to get some exposure for all of our fellow producers without the cash for a commercial kitchen.
These are veterans, people who’ve been making their products for years, but only able to share them with friends. We thought we’d give them a venue to share with the whole SF food community.
So come join us this Thursday to support our local producers, get some last minute Christmas gifts and have some drinks to boot.
“What’s that?” you ask. “I’ve heard of underground dinners, but an underground farmers market?”
That’s right. A market, and a live show, all rolled into one. Think a farmers market, but at night, with music and drinks, and fresh roasted chestnuts.
