It's semi-official: The Mission is the city's most under-farmers'-marketed neighborhood ― until this Thursday, that is. July 22 marks the debut of the Mission Community Market on Bartlett Street between 21st and 22nd, 4-8 p.m.

Of course, the Mission doesn't do anything that isn't culturally expressive, whether of La Raza or of skater boys with neckbeards. So it stands to reason that, after the need for a market emerged from the Mission Streetscape Plan last fall, the neighborhood would solicit buy-in from a diversity of groups. Long, meeting-filled story short: The Mission Community Market Collaborative was spawned last November, with help from La Cocina, MEDA, the Mission Merchants Association, and others. Logistics planning started in March.

The weekly Thursday market promises to be part community happening, part place to get a bunch of dino kale. Market Collaborative director Jeremy Shaw will be able to say more about the roster of food vendors later tonight, but he said the mix of farmers and prepared food vendors would include some La Cocina clients and other Mission-based small food businesses. And he stressed that a youth play and arts space would be a distinguishing feature of the Mission market. Plus craft and artisan vendors from the Women's Initiative, MEDA, and Casa de La Raza.

Update: Read the list of food vendors at this week's launch.

  • 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.'"
