Buying Out the Sweet Constructions Cart

Sweet Constructions has been in the wholesale business for seven years, and the mobile cart biz for only the past two months. SFoodie encountered them in the streets last week, went wild, and bought one of everything, which came to $16 -- not bad for bragging rights to say you've bought out a bakery.

Most items were $1 (orange butter swirls, butter cookies, ginger drops) or $1.50 (brownie with mocha ganache, caramel coconut bars, sandwich cookies, and mini cupcakes with cream cheese frosting). But the tuffin -- a large tart/muffin combo bursting with pear and ginger -- set us back a deserving $5. Our impulse to buy it all was rewarded with nary an errant bite in the bunch. We even added an extra ginger drop after taking the first bite.

Find the Sweet Constructions Cart most Fridays on the corner of 20th Street and Valencia (follow on Twitter for more specifics and updates). The company also bakes goodies for Spencer on the Go and Jackson Place Cafe (633 Battery at Jackson) and sells online, where there's even a Cookie of the Month Club membership.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
