Burke Street Food Truck Festival

PIC and I happened to be in Winston-Salem for City Beverage’s August Food Truck Festival and Tasting.

Previously, food trucks had set up along Burke Street, open toward the sidewalk. This time, they were set up in City Beverage’s parking lot, off of Burke St.

An interesting twist presented itself in the form of Shore Farms Organics produce booth across from the trucks.

They do their own preserving – which looked pickleicious.

While we were ogoling over everything, one of the food truck owners came over and excitedly bought all the Mouse Melons (Mexican Gherkins), saying they were hard to find.

They’re the small “mini-watermelon” looking things, left in the picture below.

Every single thing Shore Farms offered was gorgeous.

Three food trucks were in the lot in time for lunch: King Creole,

and Bandito Burrito. I was still full from breakfast, but PIC got a burrito he described between lusty bites as very tasty indeed.

Star of this event with a line to prove it?

Small Batch Beer Company! Their brewery, curently under construction at 241 W. 5th St., Winston-Salem. We took a look inside the building, but it was basically stripped bare. For photos and to keep up on their progress, follow their Facebook Page.

Small batch owners Ryan Blain and Tim Walker are hands-on kind of guys. I believe that’s Tim pictured below.
