Start Them Young

Food truck festival
Seen at the Food Truck Extravaganza in front of Souper Jenny’s in Buckhead:
Kids, parents, chefs, Fox TV, NPR, pets, gawkers, and regular folks enjoying an evening of great food with more then ten vendors selling food ranging from organic bread with bean spread to Persian/Southwestern burritos, BBQ chicken, corn on the cob, sea basss, cute egg rolls, savory waffles with lentil and rice, lobster rolls, gourmet tacos, handcrafted popsicles, and much more.

People eating

Future vendors mixed with the crowds and saw the potential. Everybody had a great time, and the lucky ones got to sit down on Souper Jenny’s adorable patio while the rest of us stood on our hind legs and dripped food on our shoes.

Other events are in the queue, but remember that we hope to move beyond festivals and into the streets!!

Pass It On!

Joyful Noise

Our very own Souper Jenny, the queen of soup, the empress of salad, shot this little clip at last Friday’s Urban Picnic and Advocacy Day in front of the Sweet Auburn Curb Market. Look for the colorful trucks, listen to the reactions of the public, and help us figure out new ways to get trucks, carts, tricycles, and tables where they belong: on the street selling good food EVERY DAY!

The red truck at Souper Jenny

Jennifer Levison (a.k.a., Souper Jenny) just needs a permit and a license plate for the incredibly cute truck she parks in front of her soup and salad restaurant in Andrews Square. She bought it on eBay for $3000 and fixed it up. According to an email, she just had a health inspection at the restaurant last week and her inspector made an appointment to inspect the truck. Yeah! Word of caution: she will not cook on the truck, so her situation may be a little different, but still…
