Rabins says a lot of UM attendees have asked for an East Bay spin-off. Since he doesn't know much about the realm across the bridge, he asked West Oakland's Novella Carpenter to hook him up ― about 90 vendors have expressed interest in the event, which Rabins hopes can coincide with Oakland's first-Friday-of-the-month Art Murmur.
Meanwhile, the next SF Underground Market is set for June 4 at SomArts, and it'll be an all-day affair.
Rabins says expect an emphasis on packaged food from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. After 6, things should get more partylike, with hot food, drinks, and bluegrass from The Brothers Comatose. Once change: This time, there's a $2 charge for admission.
