CUESA Mission Rock Farmers Market Pop-Up at The Yard: Holiday Market

Sunday, December 20, 2015 - 10:00am to 2:00pm

Join CUESA, the organization behind the acclaimed Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, at The Yard at Mission Rock this fall! CUESA is hosting a series of farmers market pop-ups at The Yard, across from AT&T Park, in partnership with the San Francisco Giants and Bank of America.

The Sunday market will take place from 10 am to 2 pm, with approximately 25 local farms, food crafters, and restaurants. CUESA will also offer fun and educational activities for the whole family, such as cooking demonstrations by local chefs, seasonal produce tastings, and more.

Get all your last-minute holiday shopping done at our farmers market pop-up on December 20. Plus, we’ll be featuring holiday-themed demos and activities at the CUESA Classroom, and The Yard will have Christimas trees and free gift wrapping.
