Food Trucks Are Rolling in to the Oakland County Farmers Market

Come hungry to the Oakland County Farmers Market on Saturday, May 4, to enjoy the first event in the 2019 Food Truck Rally series. From 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., visitors can indulge in savory barbecue, cool treats and freshly prepared culinary creations from popular local vendors.

“We have received amazing responses from the food truck rally events we have held the past few years,” Jeremy Brown, market manager, said. “Every day the market is open you can find unique items, great barbecue from the Red Wood Grill and a variety of fresh products, so when the food trucks are here, they add to the fun.”

The Food Truck Rally series kicks off the spring and summer season at the market. From May through December, the Oakland County Farmers Market is open from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
