So, Sunday, May 20, 2012 was Richmond, Virginia's first Food Cart/Truck Derby at the 17th Street Farmer's Market in Shockoe Bottom. I got there about 3:30 p.m. A lot of things had already shut down. Boka Truck had a line probably 30 deep and seemed to be doing well. The beer was definitely plentiful. I had no problem getting a beer ticket (or two) and then proceeding to the beer lines. Some of the beer vendors had shut down, as well, although this event was supposed to go until 6 p.m.! Richmond needs some more food trucks. Are you ready to run one? We need you! Here are some pictures from my time there. Hopefully we will have more food there next year. There were more non-food vendors at 3 p.m. than food vendors. It would have been better in another location and with a horseshoe formation.
