Be a Local at the Bay Area’s Sunset Mercantile
Spring festivals in the Bay Area are fast approaching (some have already happened!) and we don’t want you to miss out one the chance to participate in one of these fantastic events, so we’re going to be devoting some more time today to one of our favorites.
The Sunset Mercantile is billed as a chance to “Eat, Drink, Shop, Play, Connect, and Be Local,” and if that doesn’t sound like enough reason to make your way to the SF County Fair Building on the 14th of April then maybe you need to reread that sentence because, golly, what more reason could one want!?!?
The Sunset Mercantile is a one-day only event that is a pop-up of sorts that focuses on connecting artists, entrepreneurs, brewers, chefs, and others from within the community with, well, the community. Definitely a family-friendly day of fun, the Mercantile will have plenty of food to eat and beverages to drink (both for children and those who enjoy a little more 21+ to their liquids).
- Will there be live entertainment? Absolutely!
- Will there be things for children to do? You bet!
- Will there be booths to shop from where you can buy original artworks, crafts, and other things from local makers? Of course!
The Sunset Mercantile also has a beer and wine garden, making it the perfect outing even if you don’t have kids to take with you. In this garden of earthly delights you will find plenty to imbibe from local favorites Hard Frescos, Siena Italian Wines, and Seven Stills.
There’s not much more to say about the Sunset Mercantile other than it will last from 11:00 in the morning until 5:00 in the evening, making it fit perfectly within the day so that you can feel fulfilled but not overwhelmed.
The Sunset Mercantile is a completely free event, although there will be plenty of opportunities once there to open your wallet and exchange you cash for things that are much, much better. It is located at the San Francisco County Fair Building, which is situated at the intersection of 9th Avenue and Lincoln Way inside of Golden Gate Park.
