It’s that time of year when the city heads to Gold Gate Park for Outside Lands! Festivals are one of the best parts about San Francisco in the summer… they help us ignore the cold!
Eating at festivals always proves to be a challenge. It isn’t much fun to watch friends chow down on street food and enjoy an ice cold beer, while we go hungry or nibble on prepacked snacks and search for a wine stand.
This won’t be the case this weekend! The food vendors are giving the musical lineup a run for its money. We hope this guide will allow you to listen to the music and not your grueling stomach. Take a look what Outside Lands has cooking up.
Stock up on organic produce at their farm stand.
Wet your whistle with their organic watermelon juice and grab a raw banana mango coconut bar to snack on during the next set.
Make your sweet tooth happy with a gluten free cupcake. Kara confirmed for us they’re bringing GF cupcakes this weekend. Note for celiacs and the super sensitive: Kara’s uses different utensils and baking pans and separate storage for their GF cakes but they can’t guarantee against cross-contamination in their bakery.
Enjoy their organic smoothies and shaved ice.
All of their rice puddings are GF except for the obvious (ie cookies ‘n cream). A stop here is a most. Their puddings are out of this world!
Order the Baja Shrimp Ceviche. They’re serving sweet potato fries too but we weren’t able to find out about a designated fryer. Be sure to ask the staff.
Yes, it is true! SF’s very own certified 100% gluten free restaurant will be at Outside Lands. If you’re looking for something hardy or perhaps a good base for your adult refreshments, try an arepas, maize’wich or cachapas or all three! These breads are made from certified gluten free flour (under 5 parts per million). Heaven.
Their ice cream is GF except for the usual suspects. Three Twins does advise its sensitive customers to order the basic flavors (vanilla etc). These are the first flavors made in the day thus minimizing contamination. Don’t forget to be on the lookout for shared scoopers.
Eat all the oysters you want but pass up the chowder. Woodhouse thickens their chowder with flour.
Are you hungry yet?! Pass on the full list of food stops to your non-GFG friends. Have fun!
