This is much more than a farmers' market. There are stalls for local businesses, music, and culture, as well as after-school programming for kids. Head over on Thursdays to support the small businesses of the Mission and engage in a community effort against economic insecurity and hunger. With 16 vendors, street food, local music, and art, you won't want to miss this veritable street fair. // Thursdays 4-8pm; Mission and 22nd (Mission), missioncommunitymarket.org
