Market Menu Items

This #foodtruckfeb we’ve asked our food trucks to create a Market Menu item using ingredients sourced as locally as they can get – right from their fellow vendors!  Each food truck’s Market Menu item will be given a “Most Local” rating – can they make it to 50% local? 75%?? 100%???

Here’s the roster of food trucks, when they’re coming to the Winter Market and what local creations they’ve come up with. Read to the end and learn how you can vote for your favourite and win a Vancouver Farmers Markets Winter Survival Kit!
