Posted on by Jeremy in Blog | Leave a comment
The pipers, smiles, farmers and dancers say it all! It was a great day for the Mission. A street was turned into a symbol of what makes the Mission Community: A play street hosted by the Mission Beacon and Dolores Community Youth Alliance, YMCA Mission Girls youth painting a mural panel with Root Division artist Chris Treggiari, a space purifying ritual from Danza Azteca, the unbelievable Abada Capeoira, and Mission musicians Classical Revolution, Dave Mihaly, and Seth Augustus from Porto Franco. There were local crafts from MiSBA and the Women’s Initiative. And what’s more? Delicious foods. Amazing, fresh summer produce! Dry farm tomatoes from Blue House, fresh Sunny Farms basil, sold-out blueberries from Rainbow Orchards, sweet Tomatero strawberries, and sumptuous peaches from Twin Girls. Topped off with La Cocina snacks, the Mission Market’s Antojitos Salvadorenos pupusas, and Sweet Constructions‘ desert. Great to have the Mission out in the street! See you next Thursday, 4-8pm.

Starting this Thursday – Thanks to the Mission Community
