Robert MacKimmie, City Bees

Saturday, March 3, 2018 - 10:30am to 11:15am

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and highlighting one of our market seller-farmers.

Coming from a background in fine art photography, Robert MacKimmie  of City Bees got hooked on beekeeping in 1996 after working with beekeepers Spencer and Helene Marshall of Marshall’s Farm Natural Honey, transforming his passion into a full-time career as an urban apiarist in 2009. Each San Francisco neighborhood has its own microclimate and vegetation that contribute to the diversity of flavors that emerge in City Bees’ honeys. Honey offerings vary from market to market, depending on which hives he visits that week. Robert finds great reward in working with such intelligent and gentle creatures and plans to be a honeybee steward for life.

 All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
