Pop-up food vendors are the newest craze in this city.
So, what’s a “pop-up” you ask? A pop-up is a food vendor, who may have a food truck, that is using another restaurant or shop’s space to prepare and/or sell their own eats.
Last month, Coffee Bar‘s third location in SoMa (Howard and 12th St) announced that while they are several months away from opening, they want to open up their kitchen for use by San Francisco pop-up vendors who want to sell food out of a service window on the side of the building they’ve dubbed “The Window.”
Starting next Wednesday, Mar. 19, The Window will be hosting nine different vendors that include Soup Junkie, Good Foods Catering, Seoul Patch, Jablow’s Meats, Sweet Jo’s Chile and Biscuits and Maite Catering.
To see the March pop-up calendar, visit the Coffee Bar’s The Window webpage.
