Tacolicious's Guest Chef Tacos Series Returns to the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

June 13, 2017

Taco lovers, rejoice! Tacolicious’s eighth annual Guest Chef Series at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market begins on Thursday, June 29. Visit the Tacolicious market stand for eight consecutive Thursdays (10 am to 2 pm) to taste some of the most delicious and creative tacos around, made by the Bay Area’s hottest chefs.

Past guest chefs have included Stuart Brioza, Craig Stoll, Christopher Kostow, Thomas McNaughton, and Michael Tusk, just to name a few. Specialty tacos have run the gamut from duck confit with quince, to octopus with potato, to pork leg braised in duck fat.

Proceeds from guest chef tacos benefit CUESA’s Schoolyard to Market youth development, entrepreneurship, and gardening program. Tacolicious has generously donated more than $25,000, with help from taco-loving supporters like you.
