New Foodie Market!

My best friend, Elianna, is a go-getter. A Master of all things. When you say "But I don't know how to doooo that", she calmly responds with "Well, we will figure it out". I am positive that she is the kind of person everyone needs in their life. She works at the San Francisco Food Bank and teaches food safety classes and cooking classes how to use local produce in new and exciting recipes. I know, I am in awe of her too. Her latest conquer-the-world project is organizing a community-based market to raise funds for a local food pantry. Here's where you come in: She is looking for vendors to come sell their delicious homemade artisan goodies at the first markets in November and December!

If you just wanna come by and check out the goodies and say hello, I will be a vendor at the December 18 market. Remember when I sold pickled grapes at the Underground Market?! I'm not sure what I will make this time, but I promise it will be yummy and unique.

For more details, see her press release details below:

Me too! I am really excited about this style of market because I think it creates a nice sense of community while also encouraging foodie creativity.

It was so nice to meet you at the gala dinner on Sunday. I have been reading your blog about the different markets in the SF area. I'm jealous.

You too! Perhaps you and some friends can put a market together for your area!?
