Sample Four Newcomers at Saturday's New Taste Marketplace

This Saturday, treat yourself to some old and new tastes from Bay Area small food sellers at the New Taste Marketplace. The August market features a lineup of 25 veteran and new vendors at the monthly benefit for the Food Pantry at St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church.

The New Taste Marketplace operates under San Francisco's Craven Allowance, which allows not-for-profit organizations to hold what is essentially a large bake sale as a fundraiser, while bypassing the requirement that all food be prepared in a commercial kitchen.

This month's event will take place on Saturday, August 27 from noon until 5 PM at the church at 500 De Haro St. in San Francisco. While there is no entrance fee, visitors are asked to make a suggested donation between one and ten dollars, which benefits the Food Bank.

In addition to returning vendors, here are some first-time food sellers who will be appearing at the New Taste Marketplace in August:

  • Bottom Drawer Provisions - Cheesemonger Jasmine Smith makes a Fromage Fort with a splash of beer to introduce San Francisco to a little bit of her childhood in Wisconsin.
  • Traveling Takoyaki - Lily Alvarez makes fried or baked Japanese octopus snacks, tsukune eggrolls and Spam musubi.
  • Ladera Granola - Brian Tetrud and Karen Butterfield pack locally-sourced premium ingredients into her high-protein, high-fiber granola recipe that contains no granulated sugar.
  • Sajen - Morsinah Katimin jamu is a lightly-sweetened organic drink that comes in tumeric, ginger-tumeric and beet flavors.
