San Francisco’s largest Filipino night market will return in October for its biggest season yet at Kapwa Gardens. The in-person culture crawl is returning on Saturday, October 22nd from 12pm to 6pm at 967 Mission Street between 5th and 6th Street in SOMA Pilipinas, just .07 miles from NEMA San Francisco.

Debuting back in 2017, UNDSCRVD SF — the Filipino night market that comes to SoMa come fall — will return for its sixth season complete with more artists, food pop-ups, and DJs than ever before. You’ll be able to bounce around multiple venues to connect with Filipinx culture.

UNDISCOVERED SF is a non-profit venture designed to jump-start economic activity and public awareness of SOMA Pilipinas. UNDISCOVERED SF is part of a multi-prong strategy to build a thriving new commercial corridor in the SOMA Pilipinas cultural district by 2020.

A full list of participating vendors, as well as performers and on-site activities, is expected to be released sometime later in October. For more information on UNDISCOVERED, including sponsors of the nonprofit and a list of participating vendors, visit
