“Off the Grid” Fort Mason: Night Market & Food Truck Party | SF

San Francisco’s biggest Friday night street food party is back for its 10th season running every week from 5–10 pm. Lounge around communal firepits and discover 30+ mobile food creators, serving everything from Birria tacos and churros to fried chicken, Neapolitan pizza, and wood-fired bone marrow.

Look out for the return of SF’s beloved Mission Street Food, exclusively at Off the Grid: Fort Mason Center.

Off the Grid Friday Night Food Truck Party
March 6 – October 30, 2020
Every Friday | 5-10 pm – Rain or Shine
Fort Mason, SF
FREE Admission – RSVP on Facebook

Expect DJs from 5-8pm followed by live music from 8pm to close. 

In the 10th season, you can expect more food creators, more themed nights, more local artists, and more fun. Cozy up in the sheltered lounge spaces or next to the communal firepits with all your friends and family. Bar operator Rye on the Road will be serving up craft cocktails with premium spirits, micro-brews such as Elysian Space Dust IPA, Cider from Sincere Cider and wine from Anarchist Wine Co. at multiple bars throughout the market.

And, this year we’re excited to roll out a dedicated Anarchist Wine Bar that will feature a special selection of their thought-provoking wines.

New Food Creators for 2020

The 2020 season welcomes new creators including Taco Thai SF, a La Cocina SF participant; EaterSF pop-up of the year, El Garage; OG Tacos!, whose “quesabirria” style of taco has amassed a cult following; The Golden Marrow, known for re-inventing bone marrow; and the return of award-winning Capelo’s Barbecue, which has been delivering locally sourced, wood-fire smoked meats since 2012.

Many popular creators will return with crowd-pleasing menus, including Bini’s Kitchen, who returns for her 8th year and will continue to serve her mouthwatering Nepalese MOMOs; Bombzies BBQ’s Asian-style specialties; Curry Up Now’s Indian style street food, crowd-favorite Jeepney Guy with his infamous lumpia; Senor Sisig’s Filipino Fusion street food, and The Chairman, voted best food truck by San Francisco Magazine will continue to serve their award-winning baked and steamed buns.

Off the Grid: Fort Mason Center New Creator Lineup

Night Market Ambiance, Lounge Spaces & Fire Pits

Sheltered Cubert lounge spaces provide weather-stable environments while heat lamps throughout the market, and communal fire pits are some of the thoughtful touches to keep guests warm throughout the market. In 2020, a limited number of bookable VIP spaces will be available within the event.

New Art Installations

Well-known artists Jeremy Fish and Fnnch, as well as other local artists, will create unique art installations throughout the Night Market along with merchandise. FMC will also incorporate elements of San Francisco’s illustrated art and graffiti scene.
