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.

EXTRA EXTRA! IN 2016, we'll host NINE Food Truck Rodeos, instead of the usual seven. There will be two Rodeos in July and two in August; in other words, an extra one each of those two months in addition to the Rodeo on the usual last Wednesday of the month.

 2016 Schedule

 All Food Truck Rodeos take place on Wednesdays from 5 to 9 p.m. Music--to be announced early 2016--generously arranged by Rohrbach's Brewing Company!
