Foodies, prepare your palates. The festival is approaching.

At Cater2.me, we’re obsessed with finding unique street food vendors and bringing them to your office – whether it’s in New York or in the Bay. We believe that each meal should be exceptional. We believe in the power of food to bring people together and to create unique experiences. Over the years, we’ve become ninjas when it comes to finding the most unique food. This weekend, our team of ninjas is proud to be sponsoring the San Francisco Street Food Festival. The fourth edition of the festival will take place on Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm on Folsom Street, between 20th to 26th Street.

Don’t know what to expect? Don’t know how to prepare? Follow our guide!

San Francisco Street Festival

1) Come Early

Our first advice? Arrive early! The crowd is as dense as the food is good, and the festival tends to be mobbed around lunch time.

2) Plan Ahead

Over 75 vendors from around the world will be there. That includes Brass Knuckle, Azalina’s, the Crème Brûlée Cart, A16, the Slanted Door and so many more that listing them all would probably make us gain a pound or two. If you’d like to to see the complete list (you’ve been warned) and the map to create your own route: SF Street Food Festival Map.

3) Get It Delivered

Now, you can extend the fun of the event to your workweek. See a vendor you like? Just check out its vendor description. If it has a Cater2.me badge, we can bring it to your office!

4) Say Hello

You can come to our booth to meet some of our own foodies. We’d love to meet you in person, at the corner of Folsom and 22nd in Booth 23-18. We’ll have treats.

5) Consider a Passport

Admission to the festival is free. Though all food items are $8 or less, you can save if you get a group of friends together and purchase a passport before Saturday. You can spend passport dollars on food, drinks, or both; you can divvy them up however you want. Single passports can be shared among friends, family, neighbors, or even strangers! Starting at 10 am on the day of the event, you can pick up your passport, on 25th street between Folsom and Treat. Just look for the large passport tents!

 

6) Remember the Conference

Finally, the festival will end with a two-day conference about food and entrepreneurship. If you come, you can meet our two founders and hear them discuss food entrepreneurship on Monday from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm: Food & Entrepreneurship Conference.

 

If you’re not convinced yet, remember that the festival benefits La Cocina, the Mission District non-profit incubator kitchen that provides assistance to low-income entrepreneurs launching food businesses.
