Local Connection Pop-Up 

When: Sun., May 1, 5-8 p.m. 2016
Price: $40
As much as the Bay Area is rightly celebrated for its vibrant farm-to-table food culture, life as a farmer in Northern California is difficult — all the more so, if you’re a young, small-scale farmer  just starting out in the profession who has yet to establish a prominent presence at the most prestigious farmers’ markets or the trendiest restaurants. The Local Connection Pop-Up is designed to help bridge that gap. Held at Swan’s Market (510 9th St., Oakland) on May 1, the $40 prix-fixe, buffet-style dinner will use meat and produce supplied by four farms run by young, new-to-the-profession farmers — Hikari Farm in Watsonville, Sol Seeker Farm in Tres Pinos, and Jellicles Farm and Baia Nicchia in Sunol. The farmers will be on hand to answer questions, and, in keeping with the theme, the chefs cooking the meal will be a team of young, up-and-coming sous chefs and line cooks from prominent East Bay restaurants such as Ramen Shop and AS B-Dama. Tickets are available via Eventbrite.com.
