People line up for Jesse Kuhn's Little Gem lettuces at the Ferry Plaza farmers' market on Saturdays and at the Marin farmers' market in San Rafael on Sundays. At his 10-acre Petaluma farm, Marin Roots, he also grows baby vegetables -- carrots, beets, turnips -- along with onions, tomatoes, and squash.

The sought-after fruits of Kuhn's labor will be the stars in the third of four Moveable Feast dinners, this one slated for Aziza in the Richmond on Tuesday, July 7. Chefs Mourad Lahlou, who helms Aziza's kitchen, and James Syhabout, the former chef de cuisine at Manresa in Los Gatos currently working to launch Commis in Oakland, will be in charge of transforming Marin Roots' vegetable abbondanza into a multicourse prix fixe meal ($80; $100 with wine pairings). Ten dollars of every ticket will go to CUESA, the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture, nonprofit organizer of the Ferry Plaza market.

So why are we telling you about an event six weeks from now? Because the June 2 dinner at Spruce has long been sold out, and we expect tix for this dinner to disappear like hotcakes. Or maybe like vegetable fritters.

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
