TALLAHASSEE, FL – Tallahassee food trucks have taken over the city with a wide variety of food from local vendors, chefs and musicians since 2011.
A typical Thursday night while traveling down N. Monroe St., in Tallahassee may seem hectic to some, but to others it is something that is looked forward to each and every week.
Food trucks have been traced back to the early 1900’s in Los Angeles from citizens being on the prowl looking for unique eats during strange hours of the night.
The Tallahassee Food Truck Association conducts weekly meetings for officers and members. Any food truck member can attend the meeting, however, to join the team you must submit an application. In addition, a monthly rent must be paid to participants who are selling on Thursdays.
“Once the application is accepted and reviewed, annual dues are to be paid on time,” Beverly Rich, Vice President, Chef and Co-owner of Valhall Grill food truck, said.
Rich stated that dues are allocated to the maintenance of the website and other costs.
Tiffany West is junior at Florida State University. She enjoys going to the food trucks at Lake Ella.
“My Thursday nights have become routine,” West said. “After a long day of classes I go to Lake Ella to unwind and have delicious food awaiting me at my fingertips.”
Contrary to what some may believe, TFTA does not seek out potential food trucks to be present. Companies do make the first initial contact and from there magic is made.
