Food Truck Rodeos at the Public Market


Four-Wheeled Food Fests at the Public Market--Spring, Summer, and Fall!

It’s fun on four wheels with over 30 vendors serving up their unique cuisine! Just about everything and anything that is served from the back of a truck can be found at Food Truck Rodeo...

While you fill your face at Food Truck Rodeos, you can enjoy some local tunes from local talent.
