What: Upper Haight Farmers' Market opening day

Where: Waller Street at Stanyan Street

When: Wed. April 4, 3-7 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Bigger is usually better, and this year's Farmers' Market in the Upper Haight offers just that. Stefan Robinson, Pacific Coast Farmers' Market Association marketing promotions manager, told SFoodie that this season's opening day is expected to draw an impressive, turnout much like last Sunday's Glen Park Farmers' Market opening.

"More people are using the Farmers' Market as more of a grocery store rather than a place to hang out," said Robinson.

To make it a more user friendly experience, chef Mario Hernandez will be hosting tours and Q&A's of top produce picks. Tomatero Farm and the bakery Vive Le Tarte will present new organic offerings. As weather improves and more sun shines through, Robinson says more vendors will appear at the Farmers' Markets. Slated next for the season opening is the Mission Bay Farmers' Market next Wed., April 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

  • 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.'"
