Making Headlines as the Decade Wraps Up

2020 started off with a bang, as Minnie Bell’s Soul Movement landed on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle. The paper’s noted food critic has reviewed Minnie Bell’s in the past and, this time, was writing about a food trend she’s seeing: restaurants specializing primarily in one dish.

The story, which featured a slideshow of photos from Minnie Bell’s, was a great start for the new year. It also was an appropriate wrap-up for 2019. Public Market purveyors have been highlighted in numerous media reports lately. Below is a round-up of some favorites.
