The Underground is Back With A Kickstarter Celebration
The Underground Market will return to on June 28th to Public Works in San Francisco! We're all super excited to get back together and let you see (and taste) what everyone's been up to this past year. We're bringing back all our favorite vendors from markets, people who started at The Underground Market, got inspired to create delicious food, and have since gone on to start successful businesses.
Folks have been up to some amazing things. Rice Paper Scissors got on No Reservations, Homeroom and Mission Cheese started restaurants, and Frozen Kuhsterd is killing it with events around the city.
This market has another purpose beyond eating delicious food. It's also the night the Kickstarter campaign for Forage Kitchen ends. By 9pm on Thursday June 28th, we need to raise a total of $150,000, or the $58,000 we've already raised disappears...we can't let that happen! Please pledge today, and all the money raised during the market next Thursday will go towards our campaign. The vendors at the market are exactly the kind of folks that will be supported by Forage Kitchen, and who knows, maybe next month it could be you.
To make this an even more raucously fun event, the market will also include a Date Auction. The event that had to be postponed last week is coming back, and will be even more fun. Come bid on all the same local chefs from last time, for things like a Ramen tour of the South Bay with Richie from Hapa Ramen, a Vietnamese tasting tour of SF with the girls of Rice Paper Scissors, and Abalone diving with Iso Rabins of forageSF.
The date auction will begin at 8pm, so if you want to bid please show up early to be sure you'll get in.
