Beyond the mission
If you want to venture outside the neighborhood, take a look at the Bayview Makers Kitchen, the newest addition to the booming third hallway in the Bayview neighborhood. The new “coworking community hub” features local food vendors at 5698 3rd Street, which had previously been vacant for over three years.
“The Bayview Makers Kitchen… will provide small food businesses with the opportunity to grow and profit without extremely high overhead costs,” said Shamann Walton, Supervisor and Chairman of the District 10 Board of Directors. Currently, five vendors are registered. , but the space can handle up to 10. In addition to conducting business, vendors will also host and teach community classes in the new space.
The project was born out of a collaboration between Walton, the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD), Economic Development on Third (EDoT) and local merchants in District 10. According to Walton, the vacancy rate of the Third Street Corridor has fallen from 30% to just 10% in the past year.
If you are feeling artistic and Adventurous, you can make the trip to SFMoMA where Diego Rivera’s Pan American Unity mural, which he painted in 1940 at a festival on Treasure Island, is on display for free. It was Rivera’s biggest undertaking, which he painted in front of a live audience from scaffolding. Its symbols and images span North American geography and Aztec culture to today’s Bay Area.
After some restorations, the mural made its way from its City College campus to the museum’s first floor, where it will reside for the next two years. To find out when to visit, visit the SFMoMA website.
