CellSpace Announces: The Mission Village Market Will Re-open

Mission Community to Launch Second Year of Innovative Marketplace by the People and for the People

On Saturday, April 5th, in San Francisco's multi-cultural Mission District, the MISSION VILLAGE MARKET will transform Florida Street between 18th and 19th into a community gathering place, bringing together local economies and cultures for a day of bargain hunting, entertainment, and fun for kids of all ages.

Open from 9 AM to 4 PM every Saturday, the Mission Village Market will feature local artists, antiques and collectibles, cool funky stuff, arts and crafts, regionally grown produce, international food, a used bike and fix-it shop, a live world music DJ, a puppet show, a kidsí craft center, and a recently built cinema for film screenings. Market patrons can join a community drumming circle, visit a healing arts dome, attend workshops, and take advantage of networking opportunities in social justice, environmental action, alternative transportation and energy, community sustainability, and much more.

In keeping with Mission District tradition, the MISSION VILLAGE MARKET is proud to display many newly created murals in the renovated and colorful Market building. Market member Roger Marenco says, ďThe Market has grown to truly represent the spirit of this neighborhood. Iíve lived here all my life and have never seen an opportunity such as this one.Ē Part of the Marketís intention is to create a self-sustaining local economy while building a strong community. ďAnd itís a great way to get rid of your stuff!Ē says Market member Jonathan Youtt, Co-Founder of Cellspace, one of the Marketís member organizations.
