SF Underground Farmers Market This Saturday
Um. There will be beef jerky here.
If, for some inconceivable reason, you need more convincing than that to go to the third installment of the SF Underground Farmers Market on Saturday night, how ’bout I add pulled pork, fried chicken and andouille sausage gumbo, foccacia, homemade fresh ginger beer, Hawaiian baked goods, wild boar belly buns, Parisian macaroons, and dark chocolate almond date balls? Yeah, I thought so.
The great idea behind the SF Underground Farmers Market is to create a place where local chefs can meet with the public to share their homemade dishes, but don’t have a commercial kitchen through which to do it (or approval from the health department, hence the exciting, dangerous-sounding “underground” label). The last market was so popular that this weekend, it will be held in a much larger space and feature over 40 vendors. My stomach is getting girthier just thinking about it.
In addition to the food, there will also be a workshop on how to grow mushrooms (no, not THOSE kind) in your home and live music by Beatbeat Whisper.
The market is FREE to attend, though you’ll want to bring some cash to try out some of the cheap eats. The only catch is that to get in, you have to register here f0r a FREE membership to the SF Underground Farmers Market. Basically, they just want your name, E-mail address and the promise that you’re a cognizant enough human being to understand you’ll be eating stuff that was made somewhere not okayed by the folks at the health department, like someone’s apartment kitchen in the Mission. Which is what most of us do every night anyway. And hey, if I’m still alive after countless invocations of the “five-second rule,” greedy, gluttonous asshole that I am, I’m pretty sure we’ll all survive this event.

We tried a Thursday night one, but decided try again as line was longer than our stomachs could hold out. Matti
Matti, the venue of this market is three times larger than the last one and has twice as many vendors, so the lines should be much shorter this time!
How do drinks work (as in wine)? Do you bring your own or can you purchase wine to go with your new found treats?
It’s cool to BYOB, but there will be some alcohol there for purchase…like the homemade ginger beer! Yum.
Sorry Christy, but homemade gingwer beer is not alcoholic. It has to be aged for quite awhile before it ferments and is usually not left to do so. At least in the Caribbean islands.
