Celebrate local food and community at the Farmers Market

La Vida Local event happens at Sept. 21 Mission market

The second annual La Vida Local celebration takes place Sept. 21 at the Mission City Farmers Market.

There will be information about food security initiatives in Mission at the event, and a cookbook exchange where you can bring your old cookbooks and pick up some new (to you) ones. Learn how to grow microgreens with Margot from The Pantry and watch a vegan raw food chef demonstration with Stay Young On Raw.

Held every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting in May and running until Oct. 12, the market is a hub of local commerce and community nestled in behind the library in downtown Mission. In addition to the usual fresh produce, eggs, ethically raised meat, honey, baking, soaps and more, the Farmers Market offers live music, storytelling, facepainting and crafts for the kids every Saturday.
