Sunday Streets Visitors Celebrate the Makeover of Amigo’s Market

Residents of the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco Sunday will celebrate the makeover of Amigo’s Market, according to the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation and HealthRetailSF.

A ribbon cutting and comments from community leaders will begin at 11 a.m. at Amigo’s Market at 500 Ellis Street. The transformed market is giving a front seat to fruits and vegetables and the back seat to alcohol, tobacco and junk food, according to the two groups.

A mural at the front of the store welcomes patrons and neighbors. Residents and visitors to the store Sunday can participate in taste tests, take a store tour, enjoy music and learn how to shop and cook healthy meals, leaders of the two groups said.
