La Cocina, the event’s main organizer, and Whole Foods Market are partnering up to present this year’s Local Forager Contest. The winner (via online vote) will get a free booth spot at the festival, free kitchen prep time through La Cocina and logistical support throughout the event. The contest voting ends on July 25.

This year’s event will also feature the first-ever Night Market at the Alemany Farmer’s Market on Friday, August 17, which will kick-off the weekend of festivities. Organizers said they hope it is reminiscent of nighttime markets in Bangkok and Singapore with music, food, dancing and drinks.

This year’s San Francisco Street Food Festival will be held on Saturday, August 18 with events on Friday and the rest of the weekend as well.  Should be another amazing event!!
