Many thanks to the Neighborhood Parks Council for providing non-profit sponsorship to MCM. For the last year they have provided us non-profit status, great guidance and the resources to start very quickly. We are also thankful to the SF Parks Trust for providing a grant to pay for music permits and musicians.
Now the SFNPC and SFPT have joined to form the amazing SF Parks Alliance. The mission of the SF Parks Alliance is to inspire and promote civic engagement and philanthropy to protect, sustain and enrich San Francisco parks and open green spaces. What a great fit as MCM engages the neighborhood in improving and enriching Bartlett Street with more murals, green design and public safety improvements. Keep in touch as our plans and outreach develop. And thank you SF Parks Alliance! We look forward to making the next year even better.
Commonwealth will be donating $10 to the Mission Community Market for the sale of each tasting menu bought in the month of October.
Commonwealth is a Progressive American restaurant located on Mission Street @ 18th. Every month they choose a local beneficiary. So far, they have raised over $28,000 for local non-profits!
Thank you to Commonwealth for all their support! Make a reservation to support MCM and the benevolent business model at Commonwealth!
Another Thursday well spend in the company of Nathan from Cat’s Corner showing us some classic moves and grooves! It was also a great time to pick up a mug or two from Jeff May’s Smokin Pottery to keep your cocoa in for those chilly Fall days. And we hope you all got a chance to check out Timebank, a community time exchange service where you give your time to a neighbor and they ‘pay’ you back with theirs.
You can check out all that and more in our new Facebook Album:
Mission Community Market 9/29: Timebank, Cat’s Corner, Fall Foods!
The Bay Area Community Exchange Timebank is like a barter system but better. For every hour you spend doing something for someone in your community, you earn one hour from someone else in return. For example, you could help someone garden for an hour in return for an hour of guitar lessons from someone else.The more you help, the more you earn.
Timebank is meeting up at this week’s MCM! Meet others in the Mission who want to exchange with their community. You don’t have to have professional skills, it can be simple stuff like dog-walking or cooking lessons. Make a free profile with Timebank or join them at MCM.
Today at 5:30PM - Meet at the Timebank booth at MCM!
Ever hear the story about Little Jack Horner? Bet he’s never had plums like these before! The plums from Twin Girls Farm and Arata Farm are so ripe and juicy it’s hard to to see yourself walk away with more than a handful. But it doesn’t stop there! Twin Girls also has rich and delicious pluots, Thompson grapes, and nuts! Arata is wrapping up their fig crop and will soon have persimmons! So whether it be a pie, pastry, or preserves, MCM has the goods you can really sink your thumbs into!
