When chowhounds lunched at the Thai temple in Berkeley in April, we got some inkling of an upcoming fair, however, the posters were printed in Thai. At today's terrific lunch at the temple in San Bruno, one of the lovely lady volunteers gave us flyers in English and encouraged us to attend. She said that cooks from all the Bay Area's temples, not just her own, would be selling food there. Here's the info:

I found a graphic of the color poster on the web as shown below, which notably does not mention food sales.
