If you’re a foodie, you can reach for the stars — and the food — in Patterson Park Saturday. Forty popular food trucks will compete at A Taste of Three Cities.
“We’re so excited to be in Patterson Park for the second year. We’re also excited to bring back food trucks from Philadelphia and D.C. We’re also excited to work with Meals on Wheels; it’s a great non-profit,” said Damian Bohager, A Taste of Three Cities. “This year, we’re expecting a large crowd. We have a great main stage. We hope to keep growing this event. It’s family-friendly. People bring their kids and their pets.”
The Gypsy Queen Cafe will be serving up their famous gypsy crab cones.
“We have been on the streets of Baltimore for six years now. We’re loving it. It makes us appreciate Baltimore more. I love the city,” said Tom Looney, Gypsy Queen Cafe. “We all look forward to this every single year. We’ve won twice and we want to win again so we’re going to give it our all.”READ MORE: No. 17 UConn Holds Off Maryland-Eastern Shore 72-63
Among other trucks, the Bistro Lunch Box is back with great salads and great anticipation. There will also be apple fritters and fried bananas from Crossroads Bistro.
The event will raise money for Meals on Wheels.
“This is wonderful for us. It’s a great opportunity for us to be out in the public to let people know about Meals on Wheels. It’s a great partnership because it’s about food and being social and that’s what Meals on Wheels is about, as well,” said Meals on Wheels Executive Director Stephanie Archer-Smith. “It’s going to raise money for us. Every every eight dollars that we raise, we’re able to deliver another meal and the services that go along with it.”
A food-friendly competition.
“We’re up to about 70 food trucks in Baltimore, catching up to our neighbors in Philly and D.C. Baltimore seems to be booming and every week, there’s new trucks being added,” Bohager said.MORE NEWS: Shootout Between Cars Speeding In Hampden Rattles Otherwise Quiet Neighborhood
