About Off The Grid
Off the Grid began in June 2010 with the simple idea that grouping Street Food vendors together would create an experience that would allow neighbors to connect with friends, and families to reconnect with each other. Since then Off the Grid has worked hard to develop markets that are both located in urban cores of cities, and that utilize spaces that are not easily activated effectively throughout the day. Currently, Off the Grid operates 20 weekly markets in the greater Bay Area, and works with 150+ vendors per week. At its core, Off the Grid believes in the power of a shared food experience to connect communities.
