One of our favorite summer foodie events here in Burly is the Friday night Truck Stop. We’re there at Artsriot every week, kicking off the weekend with a drink in one hand and a full paper plate in the other. But just ’cause the food comes from a truck doesn’t always mean it’s cheap.
This parking lot is jam-packed with the best-of-the-best locally-foraged/grown/raised/procured foods in Vermont, crafted into meals, snacks, and treats that are just as easy on the eyes as they are on the taste buds. With the overwhelming variety of appetite-inducing displays, smells, and chalkboard signs boasting menus of drool-worthy, fresh flavors, it’s easy to splurge as you taste your way around.
I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m the type of person who needs to get her eyes on everything before committing. Not to mention, I want to spend as little time in those crazy lines as possible. It’s all about spending less (less time eyeballing, time waiting, money), and eating more.
Last week, we made sure to scope out our favorite affordable & delectable food truck fare from the various trucks present. Now the lineup and menus do vary from week to week, but the next time you’re looking to spend less and eat more at this food truck fantasy land, keep a lookout for these:
The Burger Barn
Scout’s Honor Creamery
You know you’re in the right place when everything on the dessert menu is less than six bucks. I promise you’ve never had mint chip ice cream taste so natural, and you’ve definitely never had a brownie ice cream sandwich like this before. And let it be known, that French macaron ice cream sandwich is the real. deal.
Hog & Harvest
Taco Truck All Stars
Jam Bakery wins my award for the cutest truck by far. Not only that, but their prices and goodies are just as sweet as their look! The most expensive option is $4 for pie?! They also have $2.50 cookies, $1.50 brownies, blondies, and macarons, and $3 sweet tea!
