Finally, Off the Grid is launching a "Sunday Dinner Market" at North Berkeley BART starting this Sunday, February 9, with 10+ rotating trucks appearing between 5 and 9 p.m. Sunday collection will include Koja Kitchen, Kasa Indian, WhipOut!, Liba Falafel, Burr-Eatery and Lexie's Frozen Custard. And this brings OTG's total number of weekly market locations to 25. [SFist]
