Event Details

40 Top Restaurants + 20 Bars & Wineries =
Endless Fun in Support of Local Food and Farmers

Join CUESA in kicking off the summer harvest with a night of feasting on impeccable bites from the Bay Area’s best restaurants. Since launching the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market 22 years ago, CUESA’s mission has been to bring farmers, food makers, and urban dwellers together to create a healthy food system: a world where fresh, seasonal, and sustainably grown food is at the center of everyone’s plate, and family farming is a viable for generations to come.

At Summer Celebration, these local farmers, chefs, bartenders, and wine makers are the stars of the night. Because we love peak-season produce as much as you do, all culinary creations will feature one of five summer plant families, including berries, leaves and flowers, cucurbits (cucumbers and melons), alliums (onion and garlic), and of course, stone fruits. Each artfully crafted bite and cocktail will showcase one of these groups using the best produce the farmers market has to offer.

Stroll the halls of the gorgeous Ferry Building Marketplace while you enjoy unlimited food and drink. Enjoy great music, go on a culinary treasure hunt to win fantastic prizes, and feast to your heart’s content.

Proceeds from the night provide much-needed support for CUESA's ongoing education initiatives, including free cooking demos, kitchen skills classes, the Schoolyard to Market youth entrepreneurship program, and sustainability scholarships for farmers.

Tickets are $125, $85 of which is a tax deductible donation.
