A couple nights back, right around the end of dinnertime, the temperatures were enjoying one of this spring’s strange downturns, so the attendance at Legacy Park’s Food Truck League event in North Salt Lake may’ve been repressed a bit by the brisk winds. Even so, a few families and couples were still moving through that exceptionally-clean park with a mission. That being: to enjoy some food from one (or more) of the eight food trucks available on-site.
Proving that people will gather where people are already gathering, a handful of vendors were selling crafts and the like along the park’s perimeter. A few folks played a low-key version of baseball. Most in attendance were gathered at picnic tables, stationing themselves in the sunniest possible spots. It was a wholesome, good-natured vibe in North Salt Lake. (And the food from Yoshi’s Enso Grill did the trick.)
The Food Truck League is gearing up for a big spring season and the list below gives a comprehensive look at the truck meet-ups taking place this week. Obviously, many more trucks are found throughout the region on a daily basis, but seldom in this type of nightly, organized format.
You can find more info at the Food Truck League’s “Food Truck Finder” page. That said, here’s the week’s schedule, with stops at multiple locations around the region represented, as well as a host of cuisines.
