ImageLa Cocina’s annual San Francisco Street Food Festival (8/17/13) is back, growing, and thriving! The festival features and celebrates local food entrepreneurs of La Cocina’s incubator program.

I’m excited that the vegan options available at the festival have expanded! This year Hella Vegan Eats, will be a part of the food festivities!

Yum! So get ready for snacking and devouring! I think the key here is to bring friends so you call try a bite of everything. The festival is this Saturday 8/17, it’s free to enter but bring cash for grub, and it’s located in the Mission district. Visit the SF Street Food Festival site for more information.

Vegan options are based on vendor information. If I missed anything please feel free to leave a comment and let us know!

  1. There were so many delicious vegan options there! More than I listed because the online menus didn’t clearly state the vegan options. At the festival it seemed like at least half the booths had a vegan option. So exciting to see. Thank you for including us and thanks to La Cocina for having such an amazing community program. ❤ Yesica
