Holy Guacamole! Larkinville Releases Line-up for 2018 Food Truck Tuesdays

Who’s ready for another great food truck/live music season at Larkin Square? For the 6th year in a row, Larkinville will be welcoming a fleet of food trucks, every Tuesday, starting April 10, and lasting all the way until October. Food Truck Tuesdays has become a huge hit over the years, by attracting hundreds and thousands of people who are passionate about their food and their live music. People also show up for the beer and wine selections, the outdoor party atmosphere, and to play some of the games, including shuffleboard, pickleball, and nano golf. 

The wide variety of food covered by the fleet of trucks have helped the event become one of the largest and longest-running food truck events in the country.

Every Tuesday, 28 food trucks roll into the main square, from Buffalo and Rochester. The rotating roster is comprised by a total of 49 food trucks scheduled to make appearances throughout the series. Additional food trucks can be found at Flying Bison Brewing Company (840 Seneca Street) in Larkinville. Hydraulic Hearth Restaurant & Brewery (716 Swan Street) and BFLO Distilling Co. (860 Seneca Street) also get into the act, by inviting diners to eat their food at their establishments (in the beer garden, and in the tasting room, respectively). Guests to the weekly event will also be happy to find that Swan Street Diner will be serving shakes from their take-out window (when the weather is warm). People can also grab a seat (with their food truck bounty) on a wonderful tiered seating element located next to the diner (see here). 

For those people looking for some healthier eating options, each of the trucks is required to have at least one healthy food option on the menu (Healthy Option by the Independent Health Foundation). 

“Food Trucks have become synonymous with Larkinville. We are pleased to offer a wide variety of food choices each week in an innovative, family-friendly, and fun space in Larkin Square,” said Larkin Square Director of Fun Leslie Zemsky. “Supporting the food trucks also supports small businesses, something we are proud to do at Larkin Square.”
