Sure, Atlanta has been all fired up on the food truck scene for a while. But there’s been a key element we're seeming to just now get together: A permanent park, a mecca of mobile food stops, a perfect picnicking place where you can go to escape the office or to grab some some al fresco eating time. The Atlanta Food Truck Park & Market is capitalizing on that trend (that's already been a mainstay in hip cities like Austin and Portland), becoming a new place for our regular roundup of portable meals, games of bocce from ATL Bocce Ball League and cornhole from Cornhole ATL. There will even be outdoor music acts and events, markets of local art and fresh produce, and... well, general merriment for all involved. Rehabilitated from an old, vacant hotel lot on Howell Mill, the park takes up three acres (THREE!) that have been begging for a community addition like this to bring some life to the block. There will be plenty of green space for you to BYOB (that's your own beer AND blanket), so you can kick back between visits to the artists’ markets, local produce stands, and musical happenings and events. Between this food park and the other one happening just down the street on Howell Mill, we get the feeling that Atlanta is (finally) catching up to the park-eating trend.
Be one of the first to check out the spread and get a taste of it all during our first look event. We've got an evening lined up and a little something for everyone: good ol’ food truck eating, BYOB drinking, live music listening (with the likes of Muleskinner McQueen), and cornhole and bocce ball playing. Seriously, what else would we need to add to this equation to make it any more awesome? Maybe some free Atlanta Food Truck Park koozies? Got that for ya, too. Other prizes and giveaways as well. Your ticket gets you a full spectrum of all that the park will offer, including food from: - King of Pops: Assorted Hand Crafted Pops - Nana G's: Bacon Infused Waffle with lightly battered chicken topped with hot maple syrup and powdered sugar. - WOW Food Truck: 20 hour-smoked pork arepa topped with a garlic lime cilantro sauce, and black eyed pea salad - Yum Yum Cupcake: Assorted Cupcakes - Honeysuckle Gelato: Choose from Sea-Salted Caramel, Dark Chocolate, Moon Pie, Watermelon or Lemon Lavender Sorbet - Mighty Meatball: Choice of the classic Italian Meatball (beef and pork) or the Bahn Mi Meatball (traditional Vietnamese sandwich with a meatball twist) - Tex’s Tacos: Choice of Chicken Fresca (taco on flour) or Pastor de Puerco (taco on corn) serves with lime fries - Happy Belly: Big Green Egg-smoked peaches on fresh greens with Serrano ham, Chevre cheese and Big Green Egg-toasted pecans. - Munch Truck: Cucumber Peanut Salad and Tres Leche Fruit Salad - One Love Jamaican Jerk Grill: Jerk Chicken and Rice - Drink selection provided by Sweet Auburn BBQ: Asian Mint Iced Tea or Strawberry LemonadeCome be one of the first food truck-lovin’ Atlantans to experience our newest mecca.
