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

Sunday, October 25, 2015, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

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.

Harvest Festival Activities

For our “Harvest Festival” on October 25, we will feature the following demos and activities:

  • 10:00 – 11:00 am: Pie making demo with pie mavens Lenore Estrada and Anna Derivi-Castellanos of Three Babes Bakeshop at the CUESA Classroom.
  • 10:00 – 11:00 am: Fall Fruit Pie Contest entry period: Submit your seasonally inspired pie at the CUESA Classroom for a chance to win delicious prizes. Details, rules, and entry form here »
  • 11:00 – 1:00 pm: Apple cider pressing: Visit the CUESA classroom to enjoy apple cider pressing with Bay Leaf Kitchen’s old-fashioned apple press. This is as fresh as apple juice gets! If you “DIY,” it’s free—if not, there’s a small charge to offset the cost of the delicious heirloom organic apples from Fruitilicious Farm.
  • 1:00 pm: Fall Fruit Pie Contest winners announced! Cheer on the contest participants and congratulate the winners.
