Where to Find SF Food Trucks

San Francisco has always been on the cutting edge—of philosophy, politics, technology, and most of all, food! It's a city of explorers who don’t just enjoy trends, they craft them. Its adventurous population may love hiking in the redwoods and sipping craft beer, but it’s their world-class restaurants and caterers that are most famous. Not only for experimentation, but for the successful results of those culinary experiments.

Michelin-star chefs have been attracted to San Francisco for years thanks to a scene lush with European techniques, Asian flavors, and Mexican traditions—all things that equate to great California cuisine. It's the best the world has to offer all in one vibrant, eclectic, highly walkable (if hilly) town. Unsurprisingly, the food trucks here are a dutiful extension of the restaurant scene, giving you the same imaginative eats right on the street.

San Francisco was one of the first cities to benefit from the food truck revolution and the trucks, trailers, and food carts scene continues to boom with some of the best mobile food in the nation. They’re serving daily and innovating nightly, so check them out yourself to get a grip, and a taste, of the next big thing.

District Six

Address: 428 11th Street at Division Street San Francisco, CA 90402

Hours: 10am-6pm daily

Formerly known as SOMA Streat Food Park, outdoor fitness classes and a barbershop add a community feel to this food truck park. Flat screens, beer, wine, and heat lamps add ambiance for the dozen rotating food trucks that come through. Taste chowder from Half Moon Bay favorite Sam’s Chowder Mobile, modern comfort food from It’s All Gravy, and Philly-style Izzy’s Cheesesteaks. Sundays they host a family- and dog-friendly Sundaze Brunch from 11am-4pm with live DJs, local vendors, and of course, more food trucks.

SPARK Social

Hours: Mon-Fri 11am-9pm (Trucks rotating 3-5pm); Sat 11am-9pm; Sun 11am-5pm

Order ahead, walk in (check their social media for menus and the rotating truck line-up), or reserve a space at the fire pits with a fully stocked s’mores cart. Must-try dishes include Al Pastor Papi’s Mexico city-style al pastorta, Lomo Libre’s Peruvian fusion, and Senor Sisig’s Filipino street food. Grab a beverage from the beer/sangria garden or a pick-me-up from SPRO coffee lab. All but 1-3 trucks close from 3pm to 5pm (to prep for dinner service), so time your visit accordingly.

Parklab Gardens

With a lineup of savory trucks, sweet trucks, and a full bar, Parklab Gardens (across the street from SPARK Social) is also home to the city’s only outdoor miniature golf course, Stagecoach Greens. Enjoy “feel good Filipino flavors” from vegan favorites The Sarap Shop (like Impossible lumpia) and brightly colored mochi doughnuts from Hookt Doughnuts. Keep in mind only 1 truck is open from 3pm-5pm (as trucks prep for dinner service) plus the Watering Hole bar

Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

Address: One Ferry Building #50 San Francisco, CA 94111

Hours: Saturdays 8am-2pm, Tues & Thurs 10am-2pm

A well-known market for the city’s chefs, the Saturday Ferry Plaza farmers market is home to nearly 100 vendors. Locals flock to Roli Roti’s glistening spits roasting porchetta, pork knuckle, and chickens. The Bi-Rite Creamery ice cream truck serves up farm-inspired flavors like strawberry balsamic and honey lavender. Other favorites include Bini’s Kitchen’s Nepalese momos and Primavera handmade tamales. Soak in views of the Bay Bridge and the iconic SF Ferry Building while you eat.

San Francisco Airport Food Spot

Need one last food truck fix before flying out of SFO? Off the Grid, known for gathering SF’s best food trucks together to create unique dining experiences, now greets travelers at the SF airport with its Terminal 1 market.

For dessert, try one of Humphrey Slocombe’s small-batch ice cream flavors like their famous secret breakfast or malted milk chocolate.

Golden Gate Park Music Concourse

Address: Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive at Music Concourse Drive San Francisco, CA 94118

Food trucks you can expect to find:
Twirl and Dip Fri-Sun 1-5:30pm
Annakoot
Annie’s Hot Dogs every day 9-5:30
La Cochinita Sat 11am-7pm, Sun 11am-6pm

Behind the bandshell in Golden Gate Park is a hidden food truck lineup for park goers. Weekdays, grab an Annie’s hot dog before visiting the California Academy of Sciences, or tuck into Annakoot’s samosas and pakoras after exploring the Japanese Tea Garden. Weekends get a little sweeter with Twirl and Dip soft serve plus appearances from La Cochinita’s Yucateca tacos and panuchos. It’s the perfect spot to picnic in the park.

The best way to sample the city’s diverse cuisines is to visit one of its current food truck parks. Play a round of mini golf or take in an afternoon of fine art as you enjoy the best food the city has to offer.

Stray trucks are a rarer sighting, but you can catch them any time by booking them for yourself! Any trucks you’re interested in are available for private gigs, and are as easy to book as visiting our SF Food Truck Catering page. No matter which food truck you go with, you'll be grabbing cutting-edge skills and snacks and forward-thinking cuisine that hint at a promising future and satisfied event attendees.
