Japanese Turnips
Highlights, Vendors, Events and more. Downtown and Sunset Valley - Sat. Jan 23
DOWNTOWN: Algo Dulce does one thing and they do it well. Their traditionally made flan, in flavors like vanilla bean and Mexican coffee, are made from scratch – there are no gelatinous or goopy textures here – just delicious creamy dessert that will take you straight back to your abuelita. Reverse Pioneers have microgreens of all shapes and sizes, along with quail eggs and handmade mesquite cutting boards. All the better to serve your favorite market goods with!

SUNSET VALLEY: Treat yourself this weekend with a little something sweet from Dorothy’s Choice. On the menu are banana pudding cheesecake, red velvet brownies, and an array of seasonal puddings. After you satisfy your sweet tooth, settle down to the work of grocery shopping. Flameleaf Farm has mustard greens, cabbage, carrots, turnips, radishes, beets and much more! Copper Creek Ranch is holding it down with packages of longhorn stew meat  – combat these cool rainy days with warm bowls of guisado, boeuf bourguignon, and classic pot roasts.

To keep our vendors, staff and customers safe, we request everyone wear a face covering or mask while in the market area. Click here to learn more about our safety measures. SFC Farmers' Market match SNAP, WIC and FMNP benefits with Double Up Food Bucks! Visit our website for more information on which vendors will be at market, what products are in season, and more.
