El Mercado: A Holiday Market

For one weekend this December, two of San Francisco’s great curators will be teaming up transform Ghirardelli Square into a pop-up holiday bazaar. With La Cocina’s intimate understanding of local food culture, and Do415’s finger on the pulse of San Francisco’s art and music scene, the two are coming together to create a vibrant marketplace for natives and tourists alike to celebrate local entrepreneurship and find the perfect gift for the holidays.

El Mercado – A Holiday Market at Ghirardelli Square will be a weekend getaway in a city awash in a booming tech economy. With over 20 food vendors and 40 DIY artisans, El Mercado will sharpen our focus on the small businesses that underpin our economy. There will even be local indie rock bands spontaneously caroling throughout the bazaar, curated by Noise Pop! Look forward to a weekend of food, crafts, music and more!

December 10
6:30-10:00PM Impact Hub SF

Holiday Block Party

It’s time to deck the halls, light the Menorah or Kinara and generally “turn up”, as the kids say. This will be the Holiday Party to end all. Impact Hub SF, B Lab and a whole host of organizations will be throwing a pretty splendiferous shindig so we suggest that you solidify your naughty/nice standing before you head on down to 901 Mission St. for the festivities. There will be music, food, libations and all the good people of the Impact world. Merry Hannakwanzamas, everybody!
