Veggie Grill Opens in Mountain View

Veggie Grill has opened its second Northern California location.

The first one debuted in San Jose’s Santana Row. The newest one opened its doors this week at 565 San Antonio Road in the San Antonio Shopping Center in Mountain View.

The fast-casual eatery offers up tasty vegetarian and vegan fare that features wheat gluten-products that stand in for real-deal chicken, beef and fish. Choose from salads ($8.45 and up), sandwiches ($8.95 on up),  and soups ($2.95 for a cup, $4.50 for a bowl).

This marks the 24th location for this Southern California company.

Off the Grid Comes to Cupertino’s Whole Foods Market Parking Lot

Every Tuesday now, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. — rain or shine — you’ll find the ever-popular Off the Grid food trucks gathering in the parking lot of Whole Foods in Cupertino.


Each week, there will be nine rotating vendors along with live music.

Among the trucks that have participated in Off the Grid Cupertino so far are Sam’s Chowder Mobile, the Oaxacan Kitchen and Waffle Amore.

Palo Alto Adds Another Farmers Market

In addition to the Saturday downtown one and the Sunday California Avenue one, Palo Alto launches its third farmers market on Fridays, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., starting today.

The market, at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center, features about 20 fresh food and produce stands. A number of food trucks also will be featured there, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., just in time for grabbing lunch.

Additionally, the OFJCC Cafe on the Square will offer a 10 percent discount on food purchases on Fridays.
