The Magic of the Season at Emperor Norton’s Holiday Bazaar
European holiday bazaars are one of the most exciting and hotly anticipated events of the holiday season. Brightly colored, filled with shops, and full of people they are a chance to deeply steep yourself inside of warmth and festivities, enchanting young and old alike, and becoming a cherished memory. If you live in the Bay Area and don’t see yourself flying to Dusseldorf for the weekend, then the folks at Off the Grid have provided a magnificent solution for you!
Known as the standard bearers for mobile food inside of San Francisco, Off the Grid is no stranger to arranging large events with many, many participants. This year’s holiday Off the Grid is no exception, and perhaps it proves more than ever before why OTG is one of the Bay Area’s treasures.
Welcome to Emperor Norton’s Holiday Bazaar! Created with the classic European Christmas Market in mind, this event will transform the Salesforce Transit Center as well as the Salesforce Plaza into marvels of light, sound, and experience. Wander through with your family and friends; gaze at the thousands of displays and lights; purchase unique gifts from the dozens and dozens of vendors who will be on hand to provide you with access to unique handmade gifts, artworks, and more. Will there be enormous Christmas trees? There will! Will there be lots of mulled wine? Of course! Will there be food? How could it be any other way?
Since its inception, Off the Grid has worked tirelessly to champion the Bay Area’s street food scene, working with local chefs and food enthusiasts to help promote and sustain numerous food carts and trucks in the area. These places offer people the chance to taste food from all over the world – and some things that have never been seen before – without the hindrances of a plane ticket or an expensive dinner reservation. Each year, Off the Grid arranges numerous events to showcase certain mobile food vendors, and the Emperor Norton Holiday Bazaar is just such an event. So come hungry, come excited, come looking to create memories with your friends and family that will last the rest of your life.
