Food trucks can be found at almost every festival, event and concert throughout the summer. Even better are the weekly series you can count on where food trucks are the star, not a supporting player. These events have an array of anywhere from five to 24 trucks or so a week, making them a great way to explore new food and beverages. Here are four ongoing food truck events that have been announced so far for the summer.
Food Truck Tuesdays at Larkin Square. 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Aug. 30 at Larkin Square (745 Seneca St.). About 24 food trucks from the Buffalo area and Rochester will participate from a rotating cast of 40 businesses. (Check the website each week to see which food trucks are participating.) Each truck will have at least one healthy option, as certified by the Independent Health Foundation. There’s live music, too. Larkin Square has tables and chairs, but you can bring your own seating. There will be more food trucks at nearby Flying Bison Brewery. Patrons are also encouraged to visit the Hydraulic Hearth Beer Garden and Magic Bear Beer Cellar. Food trucks also make an appearance at another of Larkin Square’s weekly events, “Live at Larkin” held from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays starting June 8.
