Best time to Arrive
If space is a concern or you are planning to attend with a large group, it is always best practice to plan and arrive early - 30 minutes to 1 hour before is ideal if you want to park close to the market. Please check out Fort Mason Center’s website for other events happening that day.
FMC VIP Tasting
If you’ve ever walked into Off the Grid: Fort Mason Center on a Friday night and been struck by a feeling of decision paralysis, you’re not alone. With so many tasty options, it can be hard to choose just one! Enter the VIP Tasting Ticket, exclusive to Off the Grid: Fort Mason Center. For $25, VIP tasters get their pick of four generous tastes from a rotating selection of mobile food creators each night (the equivalent of a full meal, and then some). Plus, front of the line access allows you to head straight to the pickup window at each truck/stall. VIP Tasting Tickets are available in limited quantities online in advance, and in-person at our Information Booth. Keep an eye out for special tasting ticket collaborations to be announced throughout the season.
We have a diverse roster of amazing artists to keep you feeling the vibe and enjoying the market! Check out our calendar to find out more.
We are always here to help! If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions, please reach out to our friendly market staff in red or drop by the Information Booth for assistance.
