Save the date and celebrate! The one and only San Francisco Street Food Festival returns this month with over 30 local chefs (90% of whom are women!) and restaurants slinging their best fare.
The festival started in 2009 as a way for non-profit La Cocina, an incubator for low-income food businesses, to showcase its vendors. And at its peak, the annual festival included over 80 vendors and saw over 80,000 attendees. Last year, the festival downsized in favor of a more intimate approach.
Head to Dogpatch on October 13 to taste from dozens of local chefs including James Beard semifinalist Reem Assil of Reem’s and Dyafa and Nite Yun of Nyum Bai. Third Rail Bar will serve refreshing cocktails like watermelon margaritas and vodka lemonade with ginger and lemongrass. As always, all proceeds from the festival benefit the work of La Cocina to ensure a vibrant and inclusive food economy in the Bay Area.
The festival returns October 12 from 11am–7pm at The Power Station (420 23rd St) in the Dogpatch. Admission is $6.
