The San Diego Public Market is moving full steam ahead with lining up local food artisans and chefs to take on permanent stalls in their Market Hall space.
On Sunday, February 10 at 4 p.m., their Taste of the Market event will share a first look at some of the artisan foods and dining experiences that might eventually take up residence in the market.
The event's a reward for select donors who helped fund the market's launch through their Kickstarter campaign, but a few tickets just became available to the general public.
Eater got word of what a few of the participating chefs will be making: Alchemy's Ricardo Heredia is cooking a whole pig, the San Diego Public Market's Melissa Mayer is making smoked chicken tortas sourced from the market's purveyors and event co-chair Andrew Spurgin is setting up a mini po' boy pop-up where he'll fry up Cajun spice-coated Carlsbad Aquafarm oysters and tuck them into locally made baguettes.
Other restaurants showing their support are Whisknladle, Carnitas' Snack Shack, Cafe Chloe, George's at the Cove, Tender Greens and Roseville Cozinha, plus a host of local food artisans and farms.
Also included, live music and tours of the entire 92,000 square foot market property. If you miss this one, stay tuned, the market's organizers are planning another taste event for Sunday, March 24, with a street food theme.
