This delicious kale, golden beet, and butternut squash salad is a recipe from Daniel at Blue House Farm. It was an especially fun recipe to make–involving poaching, roasting, massaging (more on this below)–and yet, super simple!! Read more
Last week at the first MCM of 2013, I heard lots of chatter about Peter’s Kettle Corn. Market goers find their kettle corn snack to be an essential part of the market experience, so here’s a little more kettle corn (history) for your enjoyment!
The history of kettle corn, as it turns out, is a series of folklore stories, so I will share with you my favorite (with a few embellishments).
Hi all you Mission Community Market goers!
I am Caseysimone, MCM’s newest intern. I’m a San Francisco native, momentarily a Vermonter as I finish up my undergrad at Bennington College, back in the Bay working with the good folks at MCM for my school’s annual internship term (FWT).
Having grown up and gone to school in the Mission, I am really excited to be back here working in the community. I look forward to meeting you all and talking about the Mission, food, social media, architecture and planning, music, and all things Mission Community Market!
Also keep your eyes peeled for my new blog series including:
“What’s That?”: Kick-start your week with a sneak peek of what will be at MCM each Thursday
“Mercado Kitchen”: On Wednesdays look for a special market recipe made with ingredients hand-picked from MCM
“Friday Feature”: A special feature about people and organizations that make the market great, or exciting happenings at the market, and more!
I can’t wait to see you around the market!

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of our amazing vendors for making this 2012 season the best one yet! We’re also happy to announce that next year MCM will move to a year-round format, opening for the 2013 season on January 17th.
We’re excited to share with you the result of a project that we’ve been a part of during the past few months. As a part of a special collaboration between MCM and students from the ENGAGE program at the California College of the Arts, eight of our vendors were profiled in a beautifully-designed book called Neighboring Greatness which offers a glimpse into what makes MCM so special. The book is available now for purchase.
We’d like to extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who participated in this project. Thanks to all the vendors who agreed to be a part of this book, participated in interviews, and hosted students at their farms and businesses so that their story could be told. Thanks go out to Hale Apple Farm, Yerena Farms, Twin Girls Farm, Emmy’s Pickles and Jams, En Vie Naturals, The Heated, ZIA Designs, and Chaac-Mool.
Thanks also go out to all the students who helped make this project possible, as well as their professor Jenny Mullins.
Thank you once again for an amazing 2012 season, and we’ll see you in January!
