First Bloom: Spring Cocktails of the Farmers Market

Thursday, April 25, 2019, 12:30 AM

Savor Spring at the Freshest Happy Hour in Town Welcome the return of sunshine and clear skies with an evening of lush and leafy libations at the spring edition of our popular Cocktails of the Farmers Market series, presented by CUESA and the US Bartenders Guild. Sip and stroll in the Ferry Building’s Grand Hall as 13 of the Bay Area’s best bartenders offer original drinks using the freshest spring produce from Ferry Plaza Farmers Market—think edible flowers, bright herbs, tender green shoots, and the season’s first berries! The first glimpses of spring are in bloom for only a brief moment, so you’ll want to taste how our talented bartenders capture these fleeting flavors in a glass, all while supporting our local family farmers. At this happy hour event, you’ll enjoy three full-sized signature cocktails and bountiful bites from celebrated local restaurants, along with unlimited sample-size drinks. These expertly crafted cocktails are served for one night only, just for you! Proceeds from this delicious fundraising event support CUESA's work to nurture the next generation of farmers, food entrepreneurs, and healthy eaters, and the USBG's professional development programs.
