Watsonville's Mariquita Farm grows incredible organic produce for a who's-who of top Bay Area restaurants as well as the public, delivered via CSAs and biweekly Mystery Box deliveries. This Sat., Oct. 9, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Piccino (801 22nd St., at Tennessee), Mariquita will park its new "Rolling Pumpkin Patch" to sell both edible and decorative pumpkins and squash. Expected varieties include jack o' lanterns, New England sugar pie pumpkins, baby bear pumpkins, heirloom Winter Luxury pie pumpkins, cheese pumpkins, lumina white pumpkins, assorted hard squash, Rouge Vif D'Etampes (aka Cinderella pumpkins), and warty blue Australian and French pumpkins.

While these pumpkins are certainly Halloween-ready, it might be a good idea to pick up some to actually eat as well. We received a pair of baby bear pumpkins in our recent Mystery Box and found them to be amazing vessels to stuff ― in our case, with spiced apples ― and bake.

  • 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.'"
