February Food Truck Fest @ Hastings Park – Feb 7

We’re excited for our first ever February Food Truck Festival at Hastings Park! We will feature double the amount of food trucks every week of February and challenging our food trucks to make this our greenest Food Truck February yet by asking the food trucks to make a “Market Jar” menu item. The Market Jars are mason jars with a reusable cozy available for $5 at our Food Truck Fest Info Booth – Market Jar and meal sold separately. Find exclusive menu items that are only available at the Vancouver Farmers Markets including Pepper Steak and Ale Stew, Deconstructed Breakfast Tacos and a Salad in a Jar! Ask your favourite food truck for their  #MarketJar menu item.

Food Trucks This Week:

  • The Bean Buggy
  • Disco Cheetah
  • Super Thai Food
  • The Schnitzel Shack
  • REEL Mac and Cheese
  • Feastro – The Rolling Bistro
  • Old Country Pierogi

Thanks to Wells Cans for providing the market jars!
