  • Company Description Off the Grid began in June of 2010 with the simple idea that grouping Street Food vendors together similar to an “asian night market” 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. In 2010 Off the Grid opened 3 markets. In 2011 Off the Grid opened 9 more. Off the Grid is proud of its role organizing, promoting and managing all of its markets, and the small mobile food businesses that we work with. We currently operate 30 markets in the Bay Area.
