Two Bay Area foodie events this weekend

Marin Organic, a network of growers, chefs, and entrepreneurs, hosts a lot of neat events and here’s one you won’t want to miss. This Saturday, July 9, the Clark Summit Farm is welcoming visitors from 10 am to noon. There is a fee ($25, or $20 for Friends of Marin Organic, $5 for kids over 2 years). This is an organic farm that has been in the family for almost a hundred years. Contact
kerry@marinorganic.org for reservations or information

And on Sunday, July 10, in San Francisco you may attend a great tasting event sponsored by Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA). This is a fundraiser whose proceeds will support CUESA’s projects such as cooking demonstrations, kitchen skill-building classes, the new Schoolyard to Market program, and scholarships that help sustainable farmers build their markets.

At the event, you’ll be able to sample offerings from San Francisco’s top chefs, such as Eric Tucker of Millennium, Annie Sommerville of Greens, Nate Keller of Gastronaut, and dozens more.  Admission is $95 ($50 of this is tax deductible) and the event runs from 6 to 9 pm. at the Ferry Building.
