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.
