Food & Drink

Coolest Foodie Nonprofit 


The conscience of the Ferry Building, the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA) has been getting urbanites to know where their food comes from since 1994. As the movers and shakers behind some of the city's best farmers markets, they've been shepherding the seasonal-produce revolution, convening highbrow panel discussions, showing city kids around farmyards, and, of course, bringing baby goats to town for the last two Goatchellas. A 501(c)(3) with a strong hedonism streak, CUESA is the place to party if you want to take notes about rooftop beekeeping with your writing hand while sipping an artisanal cocktail made from cucurbits using your drinking hand. We're excited to see what they do with Oakland's Jack London Square Farmers Market, but really, we just want to schmooze with the coolest mixologists at CUESA's next fete and cook our next Thanksgiving dinner for 12 solely from produce sourced from The Yard at Mission Rock.
