Event Details

On Sunday, June 20, the old-fashioned county fair gets a uniquely San Francisco spin. The Center for Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA), best known for managing the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, has partnered with the SF Giants to introduce city dwellers to the wonders of urban farming and homesteading: the first-ever Urban Eats: A Celebration of Homemade and Homegrown Foods at the SF Giants County Fair (June 11-20).

As urban agriculture and homesteading boom in San Francisco and across the nation, Urban Eats channels that enthusiasm into one big tent with contests, exhibits, activities, and demonstrations. The event promises to be fun and educational for all ages and abilities. The city’s amateur gardeners, cooks, and food revivalists are invited to showcase their goods by competing in a variety of traditional county fair contests against a backdrop of carnival rides and music.
