Get to Know Your Jujubes

Posted on by Mission Community Market in Blog, Twin Girls Farm | Leave a comment

Jujubes make a tasty natural snack all by themselves. They can be eaten in the early ripening stages when the fruit has a yellowish-green shade to it or dried where the fruit has a more rich, red color. Jujubes are high in Vitamin C and have been used in teas and medicines for centuries. The fruits have a mildly sweet flavor and a snappy crunch, making them fun and snacky, without all the corn starch and high fructo factor of conventional snacks. Now in season at MCM from Twin Girls Farm!

SF Parks Alliance

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.

Swinging out of September

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:
