SOMA - Orson is hosting a multi-course dinner on Wednesday where each dish is paired with wine, beer or a cocktail and a shot. According to the Facebook, if you mention "being serious about fun" when you call to make a reservation, you'll get a special gift. [EaterWire]

FARMER WIRE - Since the Upper Haight and Fort Mason have recently ratcheted up the produce, its time for the Mission to get a Farmers Market to call its own.

La Cocina clients, other Mission-based mini food businesses and even some arts and crafts will be out and about. [SFoodie]

THE SHUTTER - Signore Lucchesi reports Oakland's Neldam's Bakery, where countless sheet-cakes, challah loaves and snowflake rolls have been lovingly purchased and consumed through the years, shuttered on Saturday after 80 years in business. But there's hope. According to the Web site: "With the assistance of several cities including Oakland, Alameda, Emeryville, Pinole, and we hope soon Antioch, we will be opening a new, more modern, and greener bakery, along with 4 branches. We are trying to have all the locations open by mid summer 2010." [ISSF]
