Scream Sorbet will be a regular. On Sunday

On Wednesday, we previewed Sunday's launch of the shiny new Fort Mason Center farmers' market. The organizer ― the California Farmers' Market Association ― is offering more details about the Marina startup. Turns out executive chef Annie Somerville of nearby Greens is planning a cookbook signing, and ― if you're all into ceremonialism ― you'll want to know about the 10 a.m. ribbon-cutting. Us, we're more into sourcing than ceremony. Among the market's standout vendors (there are more than 40, the CFMA says) are Scream Sorbet (scooping special flavors beet-lemon and sugar snap pea for the occasion), Kashiwase (just in time for stone-fruit season), and the reliably excellent Happy Boy Farms. Greens will be selling vegetarian prepared foods, too. We're sensing something altogether grander than your typical neighborhood market.

Fort Mason Center Farmers' Market

When: Sun., June 6, 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Where: Fort Mason Center (Marina and Buchanan Streets)
