About The Underground Farmers Market
"What's that?" you say "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 roasting over an open flame....
The underground farmers market is a venue where you can taste 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. Pickles, pies, meats, breads to feast on - all by "suggested donation". But let's not forget the drinks and the music! Yes, we've invited the musicians. I know, sounds like a party, not a market, but why can't you have both? Come together, support our local producers, get some last minute Christmas gifts, and have some drinks to boot. This is about supporting our own homemade diy community, so come out and see what other people are making.
The vendors are still to be selected, but from forageSF you can expect delicious fresh wild mushrooms, huckleberry jam, acorn flour, freshly baked acorn bread, and candy cap mushroom cookies. The other producers will be making jams, pies, soaps, bread etc...
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 lets all those home producers get their products into the light. 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. We'll test all the vendors products, make sure they're delicious and safe, all for you to try.
