After a week’s delay caused by thunderstorms and even a tornado watch, the Alpharetta Food Truck Alley starts in its inaugural season this Thursday in downtown Alpharetta.
This Thursday the chance for rain is only 30 percent – and that’s after 2 a.m. early Friday. The high will be 81. But there will be wind gusts of up to 20 mph, so hang on to your cash and napkins.
Old Roswell Street will be filled with six to eight food trucks and live music each week from 5-9 p.m.
This week, there will be two nationally ranked food trucks from Atlanta, Happy Belly Curbside Kitchen, www. and Yumbii, according to Fork in the Road’s Dawn Hall. Fork in the Road was contracted by the city to organize the event.
The full lineup of trucks for Thursday, April 18 is:
- Buen Provecho Truck (Puerto Rican cuisine)
- Happy Belly Truck (Farm to Street menu)
- Freckled & Blue – A Modern Southern Eatery (Southern food)
- Viet-Nomie’s Gourmet Food Truck & Cafe (Vietnamese)
- Yumbii (gourmet fusion of world flavors)
To satisfy your sweet tooth, two more food trucks will be on hand:
All trucks accept cash and credit cards.
Parking will be available in a downtown parking lot opposite Old Roswell Street at its intersection with Roswell Street; along Roswell Street in designated parking spaces; and at Milton Center.
The lot beside City Hall has been closed for construction of the City Center.
The Alpharetta City Council told staff they did not want Milton Avenue closed that often, and instructed them to use Old Roswell Street instead. They also are using these first weeks as a test to determine if the Food Truck Alley is what the city wants in its downtown.
Alpharetta Food Truck Alley is presented by the city of Alpharetta and Fork In the Road LLC. The live music sponsor is presented by Music Matters.
