A list for myself as much as others – there are SO many cool food events going on! Great for kids and adults, locals and visitors.
What: A roaming gourmet mobile food extravaganza that travels to different locations daily to serve delicious food, with a free side of amazing music, craft and soul.
(The San Francisco Cart Project is where to find the vendors ongoing or find out how you can live your mobile food truck dream!)
“an impressive lineup of street food vendors and numerous trucks serving crazy-delicious food hailing from all over the dang place, from India to Seoul to Malaysia.” –Tablehopper
