This month Vancouver Farmers Markets hosts its first annual February Food Truck Fest. All month long, the Winter Farmers Markets will feature double the usual number of food trucks during the Saturday markets at Nat Bailey Stadium.
The Food Truck Fest will be a sort of audition. Visitors are invited to vote on their favorite food trucks and those will be invited to join the roster as regulars at the busy summer markets.
