This fall, the Excelsior Action Group (EAG) is piloting the Excelsior Community Market with a dynamic set of preview market days. The Excelsior Community Market (ECM) provides a centralized place where residents, entrepreneurs, and people of all ages and backgrounds can gather, making a range of activities and affordable amenities easily accessible right in the heart of the Excelsior's Persia Triangle. On September 29, EAG hosted the first preview event of the Excelsior Community Market which occurred in conjunction with the Excelsior Festival and Sunday Streets. The first ECM preview day attracted over 500 attendees! On October 13, the second preview event featured twice as many vendors, live music, and a very popular pumpkin giveaway sponsored by The Garden Project. This Sunday, October 27, EAG will host the final ECM preview day. We invite you to join us, enjoy the event, and help to shape the Excelsior's first community market for its first full season in 2014!
The final ECM preview day will occur Sunday, October 27 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm in the Bank of America parking lot, 15 Ocean Avenue. The market will feature an array of vendors, including artisans Fresh Coast, Squishy Sushi, Yarn & Clay; local business Excelsior Yoga; tasty treats from Estrellita's Snacks; and interactive sculpture by Out of Site Youth Arts Center. Our street stage will feature acoustic performances by local bands SF Jam Station and Adelante Unplugged. There will also be fun giveaways this week from the Garden Project and a free raffle! As always, the market is a great place to bring the kids, featuring hula hooping, a rainbow art screen, jewelry making, free balloons, and Excelsior temporary tattoos. Excelsior Festival t-shirts will be available again, in case you missed your opportunity to buy one during the Festival. This week, we encourage market attendees young and old to come in their Halloween costumes! Looking forward to finishing our preview season with one last great event!
