La Cocina, San Francisco’s first non-profit incubator kitchen, is delighted to invite you to the Fourth Annual La Cocina Gift Bazaar. The La Cocina Gift Bazaar brings local entrepreneurs who produce food or food related goods together to celebrate and promote locally made products, entrepreneurial spirit and the Bay Area’s vibrant small business economy. It's the ideal place to get all of your holiday gifts for you and all of your food-loving friends.
La Cocina’s program is designed to reduce the obstacles that often prevent low-income food entrepreneurs from creating successful and sustainable small businesses. By providing affordable, shared, commercial kitchen space, an array of industry-specific technical assistance and services, and access to market opportunities, La Cocina works with entrepreneurs as they launch, grow, and formalize successful food businesses. We focus primarily on women from culturally diverse communities and immigrant communities
La Cocina was born out of a belief that a community of natural entrepreneurs, given the right resources, can create self-sufficient businesses that benefit themselves, their families, their community, and the whole city. The food that has come out of this kitchen since 2005 reflects that aspiration and, quite simply, tastes amazing.
