A Pop-Up Craft Market

 The other day I was driving down B St. in my city of Hayward and I had gone from the main drag of downtown to the residential part of it and I could see in the distance the top of tents. So I drove to the end of B St., to the Amtrak station and there was this Pop-Up Market going on. What was cool is that everything there is either cooked, made, or crafted by the people there. These are local artisans and craft folks who are making some totally amazing stuff (for the first time and unsolicited I am going to put the person or their business here so people can look them up (mostly Instagram) and give them some love-these are local East Bay people):

From La Jefa's Creations:

From Chicano Pot Heads (They sell really cool painted flower pots):

From Sharonesque:

From Shop All Things Beautiful:

From Alebrijes Boutique:

From Taylorswrld (A digital artist):

From BowsByAndrea (Oh by the way they are huge A's fans as well):
