Marin County's Backyard Foodfest

Off the Grid is a roaming mobile food party right here in Larkspur. The company lines up gourmet food trucks, offers live music and creates a fun destination for Bay Area foodies to unite and enjoy delicious on-the-go meals. Off the Grid also has a website and a Facebook page where you can get the latest on which vendors will be at each location. They hold about 30 events each week around the Bay Area. I visited Marin Country Mart’s Off the Grid event this past Sunday to provide you with an insider’s view.
