Food Trucks Coming to the SoWa Open Market Every Sunday, Starting August 29

The Food Truck Festival may be over, but SoWa will soon be "home" to food trucks on a regular basis.

According to the SoWa Open Market's Facebook page, several food trucks will be stationed at the site every Sunday, beginning on August 29. The page mentions that Boston Frosty, Boston Speed Dogs, Clover, Concept Carts, Fillbelly's, Pizza Barbone, and Trolley Dogs have already signed on, with more possibly coming.

The 1st Annual Food Truck Festival was held on Sunday, August 8, with thousands of people showing up for the event. The site, which is at 460 Harrison Avenue, is also the home to a variety of vendors, including artists, craftspeople, farmers, food vendors, and musicians.

Not sure if this is a good thing or not. While there were thousands in the neighborhood, the local businesses were a tad unhappy, as none of the crowd visited local shops/galleries/etc. They hit the trucks and left. And most were there for the novelty.

If they are there regularly, not sure if they'd boost attendance much - or just rob what food business there was form local restaurants..

I don't think this is entirely true. Mohr and McPherson had an amazing day. Rocca was slamming...SoWa Open and Vintage Market were both packed from open till close. Who exactly are you referring to?

Plus the market has had food available to customers since they opened in May. Adding 5-6 food trucks each week will not deter anyone from going to a sit down restaurant or shopping the galleries. Adding additional SoWa attractions has only proven to boost sales for all surrounding businesses.

Why should customers only be limited to sit-down restaurants when they can just grab a hot dog and stroll. Not everyone can afford or wants to get table service when going to the market. The market now attracts thousands each Sunday, having options is important.
