Attention all foodies: If you hadn’t heard, plans are afoot for a possible year-round marketplace “featuring the full spectrum of California grown and produced food products” to be established downtown on K Street. Called the “Boqueria California,” the project – which is sort of a hybrid between San Francisco’s Ferry Building Marketplace and the now-defunct Copia in Napa – is still in the proposal stages, but its vision is to “place Sacramento at the center of the sustainable, farm-to-table food movement and serve as a center for culinary products and education.”
An open forum to introduce the Boqueria – hosted by Michael Tuohy, executive chef at Grange Restaurant & Bar and Dan Best, director of Certified Farmers Markets of Sacramento, will be held on Monday June 28, 2010 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm at The Citizen Hotel (7th floor Terrace), 926 J Street in Sacramento. The purpose of the forum (which is open to the public) is to present the Boqueria vision and to begin a discussion with community members about the project.
