If you want to try a variety of different foods while spending time outside with others from the community, swing by Meeting Park near the Square Monday evenings from 5-9 p.m.
Marietta City Council recently approved allowing food trucks to serve in the Meeting Park subdivision.
"Last year the Atlanta Street Food Coalition contacted the city about setting up a weekly food truck event here in Marietta at the Meeting Park development, owned by Walton Communities," city of Marietta urban planner Shelby Little said. "We thought it was a great idea considering the success of these events in nearby communities," she said. "The popularity and success of these events provides aspiring chefs and restaurateurs with a relatively low-cost way of getting their product out to a lot of people – almost like a mobile, small business incubator made specifically for chefs."
Food trucks at the inaugural food truck event Oct. 15 included steak sandwiches, meatball sandwiches and sliders, paninis, Puerto Rican and ice cream. For information on participating vendors, visit atlantastreetfood.com.
Meeting Park is located on Roswell Street between Waterman and Atlanta streets near the Square. The Marietta Food Truck Rally is presented by the Atlanta Street Food Coalition.
