Step right up ladies and gentlemen to the Food Truck of your choice, Saturday & Sunday (Oct. 1 & 2) as not one, not two, but 25 rolling restaurants set up for business at the Salem Common from 11am to 6pm.

The Salem Food Truck Festival is a two-day event being hosted by South End Open Market at Ink Block and Creative Salem.

From the Salem Food Truck Festival  Facebook page, they comment “We are excited to offer fellow food lovers an event featuring 25 food trucks, live music and family fun. With a range from grilled cheese to whoopie pies, there is sure to be something for everyone! Save the date and save your appetites for one of the area’s biggest food truck events!”

These entrepreneurs go through a lot, as you can see from the Infographic: parking nightmares, gas prices, weather and permits. They could use your support.
