During its three years in Preston, The Food Truck Park hosted just about every flavour of food festival — from Greek to anchovy and peanut butter to hummus. Now, one of Melbourne's most loved food truck destinations is set to farewell its northside digs.
The Food Truck Park will shut up shop next weekend, though it's not goodbye forever. The minds behind it have their sights set on bigger and better things, with plans to launch the city's most impressive food truck park yet, at a new site in the near future. That's all still under wraps for now, though we're told to prepare for something big.
The current Preston site will have its last hurrah from August 3 to 5, with the return of its popular Asian Street Food Weekend. It'll feature a culinary tour of Asia's best street food snacks, as imagined by some of Melbourne's favourite food vendors. Before that, it'll play host to the Indian Street Food Festival taking over the park from July 27–29.
Over the years, The Food Truck Park's weekly events have become a staple of Melbourne's culinary calendar, drumming up over 900,000 Facebook event responses.
Stay tuned — we'll let you know more details about the team's next food truck adventures as they drop.
