Thursday's Underground Farmers' Market Promises a Taste of the Wild and the Crafty
Looks like Thursday's Underground Farmers' Market finally has a venue, a private residence in the Mission at 2755 Bryant (at 26th St.). Earlier this month, we reported that Iso Rabins of forageSF was trying to organize the city's first-ever local foods shopfest. Free and open to anybody who shows up between 5 and 11 p.m., the market will feature 10 vendors selling foods and other items you can't pick up at Whole Foods, plus chestnuts, beer, and wine (for purchase), and a band ― Floating Felt ― scheduled to jam at 8:30.

Vendors include forageSF itself, offering acorn flour, wild mushrooms and fennel seeds, and wild berry jams. Slow Jams will be hawking more jam. Will Schrom is planning to show up with sarsparilla, Captain Blankenship with soaps and salves, and a woman named Kelsey is offering gingerbread houses. Garden Fare is selling edible garden gift boxes, the Golden Crust a variety of pies, and The Girl from Empanada is offering ― duh ― empanadas. Lauren and Jon Bowne will be dispensing homemade Jewish deli fare (corned beef sandwiches, matzoh ball soup), and Five Flavors Herbs is selling wild foraged tinctures. Questions?
