Come one, come all to Harlem Eats’ 2014 Harlem Food Truck Rally happening this Saturday, March 29th. The outdoor food festival celebrating Harlem’s food renaissance is free admission and will feature amazing NYC food trucks including some of FoodtoEat’s wonderful food truck partners, Wafels & Dinges, Luke’s Lobster, Toum, Palenque, and Nuchas.
According to Harlem Eats founder, Jessica Chornesky, who also produces NYC Kids Fest, a multi-cultural public arts festival for families and young children held in Morningside Park, the idea for the Harlem Food Truck Rally was borne out of last year’s successful Harlem Food Festival, which demonstrated how much New Yorkers love street food.
Jessica herself is a big fan of food trucks and food carts; back in the 1990s, she was the founder of Soup A La Carte, the first gourmet street soup cart in NYC. So she and the people at Harlem Eats thought, there’s all this food truck love, why not organize a food truck rally to bring families, kids, and foodies together over delicious food truck food?
This is a chance for New Yorkers everywhere to experience Harlem’s impressive and growing food scene. “We’re continuing to make Harlem a destination for people who are foodies to enjoy the neighborhood; there are great restaurants, mom and pop restaurants and great architecture,” says Jessica.
A larger food festival event, Harlem Eats, will begin May 3rd, and will last every Sunday until the end of October.Vendors and food trucks at the Harlem Food Truck Rally this Saturday will also be involved in the weekly Harlem Eats festival so if you can’t make it this weekend, you’ll have many opportunities in the spring, summer and fall to visit Harlem and get your hands on delicious foods.
The Harlem Food Truck Rally is open to people of all ages; there will be tables to sit and enjoy your food, as well as activities such as arts and crafts for the kids so bring friends and bring your family! It’ll be an awesome way to celebrate the coming of spring and get a taste of the best NYC food trucks.
