These are exciting times in Mid-Market as new venues are added the local food scene, according to a recent SF Chronicle article.

It was recently announced that two food trucks are offering service at 1028 Market Street three days per week. This is the first time that San Francisco has allowed food trucks to offer service along Market Street.

The SF Chronicle article covered the first day of service and all of the relevant details:

“On Wednesday, a taco truck and a German food truck parked in a loading zone at Sixth and Market streets, two days after receiving a permit from the city.”

“Historically, only food carts have been there,” said Matt Cohen, founder and CEO of Off the Grid, a company that organizes gatherings of food trucks and is not involved in the Sixth and Market venture. He called them “an exciting new amenity” that will draw passersby with diverse food options.”

“The two food trucks now across from Zendesk’s headquarters are both run by La Cocina, a Mission District nonprofit that helps low-income women who have been selling their food informally grow their businesses. The trucks are on trial for six months, after which they could become a permanent fixture.”

Having new dining options for residents and the local workforce should come as a nice addition to the neighborhood. So what can we expect to see over the next few months? Here is a nice summary in a recent Hoodline article:

“One of the two new trucks, Mi Morena, will be a permanent fixture from Wednesday through Friday, offering tacos from La Cocina chef Lupe Morena, who lives in the Tenderloin.”

“The second truck will rotate. German food vendor Little Red Riding Truck will appear on Wednesdays, pupuseria D’Maize will be on-site each Thursday, and Hiyaaa! will serve Korean food on Fridays. The latter two vendors are also La Cocina affiliates.”

Happy dining and good luck to the newest dining options in the neighborhood.
