This week there were so many great folks at MCM, we decided to feature two! Meet two of our market patrons, Shirley and David.
Meet Shirley, who we wanted to feature because she is one of our most dedicated MCM customers! She’s always at the market, dressed to the nines and looking fabulous. AND every week, she leaves with her cart filled to the brim….
Where do you live? 23rd between Guerrero and San Jose
How often do you come to the MCM? Every week! One week I couldn’t come because I had people visiting.
What are you buying? Asparagus from Zuckerman’s Farm, smoked fish from Coastside Farms, chicken from Roli Roti, mushrooms from Far West Fungi, a ham hock from Jablow’s Meats for my son, eggs from Great Valley Poultry, and cauliflower, greens, and broccoli from Blue House Farm. I’m making broccoli and cauliflower soup tonight.
What’s your favorite part of the market? It’s close and convenient, and it has most of the organic farmers that I’ve known for years. For the last twenty-five years, I’ve eaten organic.
What’s the best-kept secret at the MCM, or something you would like people to know about? No secrets! We don’t want any, we want everyone to come!
Meet David, who was kind enough to let us interview him before he ate his burger — what amazing willpower!
Where do you live? 22nd and Shotwell
How often do you come to the MCM? This is my second time. I’m glad you’re back. I’m glad it’s here.
What are you buying? A burger from 4505 Meats.
What’s your favorite part of the market? I like the different variety of pop up food stands, with food you wouldn’t necessarily get in the Mission. You might have to travel to another neighborhood to get this variety.
What’s the best kept secret at MCM, or something you would like people to know about? Good quality and fresh products that are here every week.
