The rundown: It's only been a month since the last New Taste Marketplace and we're jonesing for more. This Saturday brings the fifth month of this charming Potrero food market and it's already starting to feel like a hallowed institution. Last month SFoodie popped a few buttons on salmon and jalapeno deviled eggs, slow-cooked ribs, meatball sandwiches, lemon ice cream, black sesame peanut brittle, and much more. This weekend's event, which includes new Marketplace vendors like Bike Basket Pies and Old Skool Café, should prove to be equally irresistible. Hopefully this shindig won't get too big; last month it maintained a funky neighborhood feel, with chatty vendors, decent prices, reasonable crowds, and live local music.
