Second Sunday in Central Orlando means the air around the Fashion Square Mall will be filled with the smell of a wide variety of artisan foods. The Food Truck Bazaar and Night Market is back for its monthly visit to the area just East of Downtown. One of the new visitors to the gathering of Food Trucks today was Rommel Von Dyke. “It was cold out, but the food was delicious” Mr. Von Dyke said.

The recent transplant to the area has been travelling the city finding things to do which led him to the Food Truck Bazaar. The Bazaar itself travels around the Central Florida area with up as many as seventeen trucks showing up to the events. These events offer diverse food options at low cost to the adventurous crowds that come out, sometimes even braving the cold. The brisk 42-degree night did not stop those willing to wait in line for their favorites.

At times as many as 1,500 people attend on second Sunday according to City Daily, which considers it one of their signature events. Mr. Von Dyke says “I tried to sample as much as I could, I had a Lobster Roll (Cousin’s Maine Lobster), The Danger (The Burger Lab), Blackened Chicken Mac n Cheese (Smac), and Lobster Bisque (Cousin’s Maine Lobster)”.

In 2017 the rotating bevy of trucks in attendance shows that the demand for food truck gatherings is being met by the mobile restaurateurs who operate and prepare the food people travel all over Central Florida to enjoy.
