It’s been confirmed: The Mobile Food Truck Court will launch on Nov. 5 at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market.
The court, organized by the newly formed Phoenix Street Food Coalition, has been green-lighted by the city. Food trucks will set up every Friday during lunchtime in the parking lot of the market.
Brad Moore, owner of Short Leash Hotdogs, is spearheading the effort. He hopes to draw downtown employees.
The trucks will be set up in the parking lot, with tables and chairs underneath the carports for shade. If all goes well, Phoenix Public Market owner Cindy Gentry said the hope is to renovate the parking lot with misters to make it more diner-friendly. She is looking forward to food court and thinks it will add to the foot traffic in the market.
“I love the energy of the trucks and the people,” she said. “The food is fabulous, and this will really create a good synergy with the public market. Nothing but positivity can come from this.”
Here are the confirmed food trucks for the opening:
- Riteway Catering: smoked barbecue.
- Paradise Melts: grilled cheese sandwiches.
- Short Leash Hotdogs: gourmet hotdogs.
- Sunshine and Spice: Asian fusion.
- Sweet Republic: ice cream.
Moore hopes to add more trucks and rotate them.
11 a.m.-1 p.m. Fridays, starting Nov. 5.
Downtown Phoenix Public Market, 14 E. Pierce St., Phoenix.
