Spotlight on a Vendor: Doc’s of the Bay Truck
Today’s spotlight of a vendor is on our first food truck to join the gang. Doc’s of the Bay was a fellow food vendor alongside me at Bites OFF Broadway in Oakland. It didn’t take too long for me to start treading sammies for burgers, fries, and desserts from their delicous truck. Because of their loyalty to Oakland and Oaktown being my home, our paths crossed often and Zak and his crew never hesitated to hand me a burger wherever I found them. I felt like a lucky boy each time I saw their beautiful truck parked at some various venue just waiting for me to come say hi to. When I decided to implement just one food truck per #NTM event, they were the first people I could think of.
Doc’s of the Bay is just a little over 1 year old (I was at their bday party!) and have not just been serving delicious food but were also vocal supporters of updating and reforming Oakland’s mobile food laws. They attended many of the public hearings about the issue and thanks to them and the other loud supporters of the bill, it is now running a multitude of food pods pilots in Oakland, and Doc’s of the Bay is just one of the many food trucks you can find there and all over the bay area.
Make sure to mark your calendars for June 23rd so you will be able to try them and many other vendors which I will highlight as we near the re-opening of New Taste. To see a complete list of all the vendors participating in the June 23rd market, just click the May 2012 archives on the right!
