The New Food Truck Park Is Here! The New Food Truck Park Is Here!

Foodies in ATL rejoice! Atlanta’s first permanent food truck park is opening tomorrow evening on Howell Mill Rd (next to the I-75 bridge). Up to 15 food trucks will be offering their noshy goodness for lunch and dinner. Check the website for the day’s schedule. There’s more – live music on Thursday nights and a farmer’s market on the weekends.

Last year the City of Atlanta passed ordinances easing restrictions on food truck vendors. It’s a triple win for the city. While adding jobs to Atlanta’s economy, it positions the city favorably in a booming new market (that bad press from the Eat St series will be only a sad memory) and best of all, Atlanta’s will have some of the best street food in the country within taste bud’s reach.

Disclaimer: I attended the private opening last Friday night. Delicious doesn’t even come close to the experience. Who knows, we may have Charlie Harper sightings there soon!

    I’m a fan of the food trucks and I live near the park, so I’ll be there often. But, here is what I don’t get: if you create a “park” for 15 trucks to line-up side-by-side, to serve you food, isn’t that a food court? Not that there is anything wrong with food courts.

    I don’t get it either. I don’t get gourmet food trucks as a business model, and isn’t parking them in a parking lot about the same as a tiny restaurant except with some added generator fumes?
    Kinda like bringing your Spaghetti Factory meal back to the RV park.

      Yeah, I’m with you on this one. Food trucks are to be mobile and travel to the mass of customers, not the other way around. That’s why they have wheels and engines.
