Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA)
CUESA's mission is to cultivate a healthy food system through the operation of farmers markets and educational programs. CUESA is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1994 to educate urban consumers about sustainable agriculture and to create links between urban dwellers and local farmers. CUESA has managed the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco since 1999, the Jack London Square Farmers Market in Oakland since 2016, and Mission Community Market in San Francisco since 2018. CUESA’s markets are certified farmers markets renowned for diverse offerings of high-quality, delicious local products. CUESA’s educational initiatives inspire eaters of all ages to participate in cultivating a healthy food system, including cooking demonstrations, farm tours, youth programs like Foodwise Kids and Schoolyard to Market, and more. We envision a healthy world nourished by environmentally sound, humane, economically viable, and socially just food systems.
