Spring Picnic at New Taste Marketplace

Come hungry and stay for the Foodie fun

(SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – April 11, 2014)  On Saturday, April 26, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., New Taste Marketplace returns with its unique community market and fundraising event.  Now in its fourth year, the New Taste Marketplace is the perfect place for curious eaters to experience new food and flavors by local food artisans on the rise—all while listening to music, enjoying local beer and wine and supporting a great cause!

New Taste is known to feature up-and-coming entrepreneurs, helping them launch into the foodie scene. For example, the owners of Frozen Khusterd and Sugar & Spun will be premiering their new dessert business. Bandit Cafe will also be presenting two new products. Stop by New Taste to uncover the next big culinary artist!

Vendors include Erica Davie of Bandit Café selling her organic, freshly baked goods; Jessica Vera and her partner in crime Jason Ramirez of The Munchie Stop with their mouth-watering oxtail soup; Linda Lo of Simply Mochi with her sweet mochi; Viktoria Daute of Little Red Riding Truck serving up delicious Deutschland food and many more great artisans. There really is something for every palate!

Proceeds from New Taste Marketplace go to The Food Pantry at St. Gregory’s of Nyssa Episcopal Church, which provides free, fresh groceries to up to 400 hungry families each week.  The marketplace unites the community, connects neighbors to budding food businesses and increases awareness of hunger issues in our city.
