Community and Youth

We’d like to welcome our neighbor, the Community Music Center (CMC) to the market! Talk to a friendly student or teacher about the classes and events happening at their house on Capp St. or make some noise at their Instrument Petting Zoo!

As we gear up for school next week, we are happy to have the Mission Beacon back and in action with art activities and fun! All youth welcome! As soon as the school year starts, we’ll have regular after-school programs AT THE MARKET with health, nutrition and physical activities for all youth. Come on down!

More on the MCM:  

Funds raised will contribute to public space improvements, murals and community organizations participating in the market. The Mission Community Market originated from the Mission Streetscape Plan, a community-based planning process led by the San Francisco Planning Department. The Mission Community Market Collaborative is a partnership of non-profit, private and public organizations with fiscal sponsorship from the Neighborhood Parks Council. Supporters of the Mission Community Market include: The Office of Supervisor Campos, the San Francisco Police Department – Mission Station, Lower 24th Street Association, the San Francisco City Planning Department. Thanks to our sponsors and partners for making this happen:
