Winter months are long and hard with limited food trucks out around town. Most trucks go into hibernation mode around the end of November and emerge in the spring. Trucks will be back out starting this week (weather permitting) for some of the best food in town.
Some of the go-to food truck meets are even receiving an update. One of the most popular, Westover Wednesdays, will be adding vendors and live music this year.
“We are trying to keep the ever-changing food scene fresh, so we added some local vendors to spice it up a bit,” Hot Rod Wiener owner Andrea Wilson tells us. “We thought a marketplace with different vendors and a rotation of local food trucks, music and entertainment would be something fun to do on a Wednesday night with your family and friends.”
Here is a roundup of meets and key areas to keep an eye on in the coming month.
March 10th – Good Earth Garden Center: Good Earth Garden center has a monthly meetup on the 1st Thursday. Will start back on 1st Thursday in April.
