27th Annual EarthFest

2017 EarthFest  •  Sunday, April 23  •  10am–5:30pm  •  Behind our Nob Hill store

La Montañita Co-op Food Market is proud to announce EarthFest 2017! Join the tradition of celebrating the Earth behind La Montañita’s Nob Hill store (3500 Central Blvd.) on Sunday, April 23 from 10a – 5:30p. Admission is free and the whole family (yup, even your furry friends) are welcome!

Each year La Montañita takes over Silver Ave. between Carlisle Blvd. and Tulane Ave. and makes room for hundreds of local vendors, social and economic justice organizations, environmental advocacy groups, performers and, of course, La Montañita’s delicious deli foods.

The two-block party has a large stage front and center where attendees can enjoy a variety of performances throughout the day while walking about to purchase starter plants early in the spring season and receive gardening and farming information from experts in their field. You may even run across a petting zoo filled with baby goats from one of La Montañita’s local vendors, The Old Windmill Dairy. With so much going on, be sure to come early and enjoy all that La Montañita Co-op EarthFest has to offer as it celebrates our local community and planet.
