Covo | 981 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA

Inspired by the vibrant night markets of Asia, Undiscovered SF is a free monthly Music+Art+Food Festival and curated collection of emerging artists and merchants that celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the SOMA Pilipinas district, located in the heart of San Francisco’s innovative South Of Market neighborhood.

Normally taking place every third Friday, in December join in for a special Saturday holiday pop-up market at Covo on Mission Street, one block from the SF Mint. This is a smaller, more intimate event than what takes place in The Mint, but still awesome.

It’s an all day affair from noon to 8 pm, filled with 20,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor space with 25+ vendors selling fashion, streetwear, books, cultural crafts, books and more. Plus there will be delicious Filipino food vendors and good music. Shop for unique presents and support local entrepreneurs.
