MCM Returns for 2017!

Posted on by Jeremy in Blog | Leave a comment

We are excited to come back to 22nd Street on March 16, 2017! Join us this Thursday as we celebrate MCM’s return and a ribbon cutting for La Placita, the new public space on Bartlett!

La Placita Construction is Complete! Join the Ribbon Cutting March 16th

After years of community planning, surveying and the weekly placemaking efforts of the Mission Community Market, La Placita will provide a beautiful, safe and much needed public space in the heart of the Mission. The goal for the plaza is to create a flexible urban space that can provide opportunities for gathering, meeting neighbors and celebrating the diversity of the Mission District.

Ongoing programming and activation of La Placita is inspired by the community surveys and outreach in the Mission Community Assessment & Youth Engagement Project thanks to the generous support of the San Francisco Foundation. The new space will also offer opportunities for community gatherings like the Mission Community Market, as well as smaller neighborhood activities, health fairs, fundraisers and play activities.

Email us you’re interested in hosting an event in La Placita or would like to join us in organizing for a “Community Benefit District,” to promote local businesses, clean and activate our neighborhood streets.

Jet Martinez & the Unicornio

Posted on by Mission Community Market in Artists, Blog, Jet Martinez, murals, public art | Leave a comment

unicornioOne of the (victimless) tragedies of the Mission Market building was the tearing down of the replica of the Mission’s first mural and Jet MartinezAmate Mission. But like a unicorn rising from the ashes, Jet brought us a new piece for Bartlett.

File_000  File_001

From Jet: The concept of “Unicornio de la Misiòn,” at Bartlett and 22nd, is a continuation of Jet Martinez’s work inspired by Mexican folk art forms. In this piece, the floral work will be reminiscent and inspired by enameled floral patterns on copper plates from the state of Michoacan in Central Mexico.  

The main subject, the unicorn, is meant as a symbol of magic and chaos.  While there is no specific reference to unicorns in Mexican lore or in the Mission, there is a strong appreciation for magic and the unexplained in both communities. The piece is lighthearted while at the same time exquisitely executed.   

Thank you Jet for bringing beauty to Bartlett and cherishing our neighborhood through your art. The mural is funded by a San Francisco Community Challenge Grant. Thanks to the SF Arts Commission, SFMTA and Casa de la Raza for their support.

Mercado Kitchen: Valentina’s Veggie Medley

Posted on by Mission Community Market in Blog, Blue House Farm, Far West Fungi, Mercado Kitchen, Moua's Farm, Recipes | Leave a comment

We often think that the Winter months bring us a lack of variety in the kitchen. How do we make our meals fun and interesting and into something delectable we want to eat? The answer is simple. Vegetables.

California’s bounty is incomparable and not to be taken for granted. From a variety of greens to colorful root vegetables, we still have a lot of produce options before spring rolls around. Don’t get discouraged. Focus on finding amazing fresh ingredients (found at your local farmers’ market) and the meal practically makes itself. Here is a veggie medley inspiration for you. Modify as you like!

This meal was made in 3 parts. Makes 3-5 servings, depending on how hungry you are!

Prep Time: 30 mins. Cook Time: 1 hour.

Root Medley

  • 1 Bunch Golden Beets
  • 1 Bunch Red Beets
  • 1 Bunch Carrots
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt + Pepper
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Lemon Zest

Cut off Beet greens and put aside for Sautée (later). Cube beets and carrots to similar size. Mix in bowl with olive oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and lemon zest. Spread evenly on cooking sheet. Bake in Oven at 365° F for 45-50 mins.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts

  • 3-4 Cups of Brussel Spouts
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt + Pepper
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Lemon Zest
  • 2 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast or Parmesan Cheese

Clean and chop Brussel sprouts in half, if desired. I find it absorbs more flavor when they are chopped in half but usually just chop the bigger brussels. Mix in bowl with olive oil, salt, peeper, red pepper flakes and lemon zest. Spread evenly in cooking pan. Sprinkle nutritional yeast/ parmesan cheese on top. Cover in aluminum foil and poke a few holes in foil for ventilation. Cook covered in oven at 365°F for 30 mins. Uncover, stir it up a bit and cook for another 30 mins! Yum.

Beet Green Sautée

  • Beet Greens from your 2 Bunches of Beets
  • 1/2 Cup Pine Nuts (Or Walnuts)
  • 1-2 Cups of Shitake Mushrooms
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt + Pepper

Sautée can be done while everything else bakes! Yay for time-saving.

Chop up onion and garlic and start the sautée with Olive oil on Medium heat. Add Shitake Mushrooms and pine nuts and let cook about 5-7 minutes. Chop up beet greens and add to your sautée. They cook down a lot! Add your salt, pepper and other herbs you like to taste! Cook ’til beet greens have cooked down a bit but are not soggy (about 5-8 minutes more).

Now that you have your three components, add them in equal parts on top of rice or lentils. And enjoy!
