Trucks slated to be there include: Chef Street Bistro, JK Cones and Wafflez and Wingz (all three new), plus Auto Burger and Fry Guys; Gourmet Goombahs; Herban Legend; King of Pops; Maryland Crab Co.; Minacci’s Gardens; NC Icy Treats; Root Down; Roots Farm Food; Ruthie’s of Charlotte; Sauceman’s; Smoke and Go; Sunrise Grill and Sandwich Co.; The Homegrown Crepe; The Wingzza Truck; and Turkey And ...

Parking is $5 at the lot next to Chow Down. Note: Consider bringing lawn chairs but not a cooler with alcohol (it's not BYOB; beer and wine are offered at the market). Admission to the event is free; vendors have assorted prices. More info: facebook.com/ChowDownUptown.
