SF Filipino Night Market coming back with in-person ‘culture crawl’ Oct. 16
SAN FRANCISCO – After being shuttered by the pandemic for 19 months, the popular UNDSCVRD SF Filipino night market on Folsom Street, between 6th and 8th streets, will be back on Saturday, Oct. 16 for an in-person “culture crawl” through the SoMa Pilipinas Culture District.
Ever since the market debuted in 2017, UNDSCVRD SF has become a popular Sunday fixture for locals and transients alike to sponge up the city’s rich Filipino culture, made possible by the dozens of vendors who participate in each market, selling all sorts of street food and craft goods.
Amid strict health measures, the nonprofit in 2020 hosted UNDSCVRD X , the largest online event for Filipino culture of its kind. But with rising vaccination rates and infections showing signs of slowing in San Francisco), the organization is set kick-off its series of in-person night markets.
“Our team is working hard to make this year’s UNDSCVRD Culture Crawl 2021 as fun and safe as possible for everyone to come and explore the different venues while connecting with Filipino culture,” the assured in a statement.
A full list of participating vendors is expected to be released sometime in October; vendor applications are still open until Sept. 12 for the October event. Expect the absolute best Filipino street food offerings anywhere in the city that Saturday.
