On any given Saturday, a throng of early birds slip on their comfy sneakers, grab a tote and head to San Francisco’s Ferry Plaza Farmers Market where dozens of vendors await. Curious customers mosey over to food stands to find a mix of mouthwatering dishes, including the glistening rotisserie chicken served at Roli Roti.
At the Roli Roti food truck, short for rolling rotisserie, customers are entrance once they catch dozens of roasted chickens slowly spinning on a rotisserie skewer. The built-in oven grills the birds alongside juicy pork tenderloin, while fingerling potatoes roast on a lower tray to absorb all the drippings. It’s the type of comfort food that has made Roli Roti a fixture at Bay Area farmers markets for the past 20 years.
