6th Annual San Francisco Street Food Festival
Hosted by La Cocina for the sixth straight year, the San Francisco Street Food Festival celebrates the small, independent food businesses that uphold the city’s vibrant, ever-evolving foodscape. 2014 looks to be the last year of the festival in its current iteration, as it’s grown from a small event into a massive, 80,000-person celebration that envelops the Mission every year. More than 80 local vendors will be on hand, including Bicycle Banh Mi, Heirloom Cafe, and Three Twins Ice Cream.
Though so many choices may seem overwhelming, attendees can easily navigate the festival using an iPhone app loaded with vendor menus, maps, and inside access to games and contests. See the event website for more information.
La Cocina—Spanish for "kitchen"—serves as an incubator (or perhaps an industrial-grade oven) for new businesses. The organization works with low-income and immigrant female entrepreneurs, granting them access to affordable commercial kitchen space, technical assistance, and other tools that help to cut down on the high costs of opening a restaurant.
