The food-truck festival Off the Grid is finally driving off the mainland and onto the Island.
The "soft launch" of Off the Grid Alameda takes place Saturday, June 2 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at , with a host of culinary carts to tickle the tastebuds in every direction.
Off the Grid hosts food truck markets around the Bay Area, with weekly events in San Francisco and Berkeley — and now Alameda.
South Shore Shopping Center is one of five areas designated in an ordinance adopted in February. The Off the Grid food truck market will be co-sponsored by Jamestown, the shopping center's property owner.
The lineup for the June 2 Off the Grid Alameda kick-off event includes:
In addition to the tasty treats, there will also be non-amplified music and places to take a seat and enjoy the sensory stimulation.
Free parking is provided in the Alameda South Shore Center lot.
