A Brief History of Off the Grid

Anybody who has more than a passing fancy for food trucks in San Francisco is familiar with Off the Grid, the organizer of street food meet ups that is largely responsible for shepherding the wave of new food trucks in this city. Now with markets serving lunch and dinner six days a week, a consulting arm that helps steer vendors through the crazy permitting process and management services responsible for placing trucks at Proxy and the recently held Golden Gate Fields markets, Off the Grid is set to get even bigger on October 9, eliminating that pesky Sunday hole in the schedule by setting up shop in the North Bay. Off the Grid Marin will join San Mateo and Berkeley as the three regular meet ups held outside San Francisco city limits.

Bay Citizen gives a short history of how Off the Grid came to be and how far it has come since it hosted its first market at Fort Mason in June, 2010. There isn't a single street food vendor in San Francisco that hasn't been influenced by Matt Cohen and crew, including those who do not choose to participate in one of the 11 markets each week.
