Saturday scenes and scenery:
A stroll through the Mission Community Market

In addition to our Mission neighborhood street food vendors and our corner produce markets, since July we've also had a weekly (Thursdays 4-8 pm) street market on Bartlett Street.

The Mission Community Market (MCM) is a weekly, outdoor marketplace that celebrates the Mission District’s diversity with fresh foods, local businesses, and youth activities in order to improve family health, youth access to arts, and the safe, fun use of Mission streets.

It was fun to walk around during the second week of November.

Farm stands take over the street.

Only in California would these have been in season so late in the year.

There's something a little scary about salad greens this colorful, but I bought a bag; had to try 'em.

Vendors suspect they had better teach us how to cook their produce ... they will probably be quite right as we move into the season of root crops.

Musicians collected a small crowd of onlookers -- they were fun.

In the midst of all this food, time to stop for a bite.

Art for sale attracts interest.

Any market whose produce comes in this truck is a great addition to the neighborhood.
