If you didn’t know, Taste of Atlanta returns this weekend, and Atlanta food trucks will make a bigger appearance than ever before. As the food truck scene has expanded, and the lineup of available trucks has nearly exploded in the last year, the yearly foodie fest is embracing the scene with open arms. Food trucks aren’t new to the festival, but this year they will be more prominently featured. The Taste of Atlanta crew even teamed up with the Atlanta Food Truck Park for a “Taste of Atlanta night” on August 30th.
Given the setup of the festival, where restaurants from all over Atlanta set up tasting booths and carts, the expanded inclusion of food trucks seems only natural. Some of the trucks you can plan to see include Sweet Auburn BBQ, Munch Truck, Rouxd Food Truck, Honeysuckle Gelato, Mighty Meatballs, and Yoli’s.
The festival runs from October 5th-7th, and tickets are still available here.
Dinner at the Depot wraps up for the season
One of Atlanta’s OTP food truck gatherings that has picked up steam this year, Dinner at the Depot in Kennesaw, wraps up their food truck season at the end of this month, just in time for winter to roll in. The final evening of the gathering, hosted Monday nights from 5 p.m.-8p.m. at The Depot in downtown Kennesaw, will be on October 29th. That leaves just four more Dinner at The Depot’s until after the thaw in the spring, so get out there while you can.
Nutella truck comes to town Oct. 24-27
Yes, there is a Nutella truck. What is better than finding out there is a rolling supply of Nutella coming to Atlanta? How about the fact that it is everyone’s favorite price, $free.99?
As part of a promotional “Nutella Breakfast Tour”, Atlanta was chosen as one of twelve cities to get a few days of free Nutella samples. Though no official schedule of locations has been posted to their Facebook page yet, you can expect one before the truck gets into town.
