Mobile Foodies Look to Set Up San Francisco Colonies



    Battle of the Bays: The Backstory You Need

    If one man has his way, San Francisco's street food revolution is about to get a lot bigger.

    The organizer of a Friday night street food market at Fort Mason is pushing the City to allow up to 28 food carts around San Francisco, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

    The cash-strapped San Francisco Recreation and Park Department is scheduled to vote on the proposal Thursday.

    The Roaming Mobile Street Food Market plan would be set up food carts at Civic Center Plaza on Friday, Waller and Stanyan streets on Tuesdays and Sunday and at Mission Playground on Saturdays.

    San Francisco would make at least $1,500 a month plus a percentage of the mobile kitchen's revenue from the deal.

    If approved, the deal could be a win-win for the City with the proposal already earning the back of some neighborhood groups and the plan promising to add much needed jobs.
