In 2019, we were part of the event through our sister company Moveable, curating and placing food trucks at the event on both Saturday and Sunday. We saw first-hand how big and how significant of a community event this is for the Foster City / San Mateo County area so we're truly excited to be able to curate and create the artist & maker market for this year's Foster City Summer Days event. While SF Etsy–the curator of the artist & maker market in 2019–has taken a sabbatical from events in 2022, we'll still be working with them to ensure that we can build on the success of the 2019 market experience!
