Tree Planting Event, Sat. 2/15

Printer-friendly version

We are pleased to be able to partner with Invest From the Ground Up, a regional tree planting and education program, in bringing 7 new trees to the Community Park.  Brisbane was one of 21 unique sites selected for the 2014 Invest From the Ground Up – Community Tree Planting Program!

The program's goals are two-fold:

- Increase awareness & community involvement in caring for community trees, including proper care and maintenance

  • - Increase tree canopy, shade and related tree benefits to communities, including reducing heat island effect, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, saving energy, cleaning water and air, providing aesthetic and habitat value, and improving public health

We need 30 volunteers from 9:00am - 12:30pm on Saturday, February 15th to make this a successful event. Click here to view the event flyer.

Contact Natalie Muñoz at (415) 508-2118 or nmunoz@ci.brisbane.ca.us to sign up today!

Crepe & Brioche

Printer-friendly version

If you regularly frequent the Thursday Farmers' Market, you've noticed that "the bread man" of Crepe & Brioche hasn't been there.  That's because sales were down in December...and "the bread man", or Daryl, wasn't allowed to return.  But all you lovers of Crepe & Brioche's rum almond croissants, lightly salted pretzels, nutella twists, garlic and cheese loaves, and other fabulously fresh offerings...don't despair, because Crepe & Brioche will be back on Thursday the 16th!  And they need to know that Brisbane cares about whether they're at the market or not - it will determine if they're back the following week!  So make sure you show your support by purchasing a treat or two, or three...or four.  Thanks and happy market shopping!

Happy Holidays!

Farmers' Market

Printer-friendly version

Given the upcoming holidays, extremely cold weather and inability to see their produce once the sun goes down, the vendors have requested that the market take a break until January 9th.  On that day, the market will switch to their "winter hours", or 2pm - 6pm.  When Daylight Savings Time starts in March, they will resume their regular, "summer hours" of 3pm - 7pm (3/13).  At that time, Crepe and Brioche will be returning (for all that have missed their artisan breads, cakes, and croissants the past couple of weeks!), as well as Tantalizing Toffee (since all of her holiday orders will have been filled).  Thank you for your continued support of the market - it's what allows the market to be year-round.  That, and the vendors still love coming to Brisbane and the loyal customers they serve.  Happy Holidays!
