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

Sunday, November 22, 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 excited to launch 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.

Each Sunday pop-up 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.
