Syrian & Somali Pop-Up Souq. Elfa is an Arabic word that "conveys a deep sense of warmth, safety, and the love of home and family."

Here's your chance to try out locally made Syrian and Somali sweets and savory dishes. The pop-up market also includes crafts created by Elfa's youth empowerment club. Proceeds from the day's purchases go directly to the chefs, bakers, and artists. 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7. 525 N. Bonita Ave.
