Food trucks to rally at Centennial outdoor market

Posted

Local hipsters and foodies, rejoice.

Sundays on the Streets, Centennial’s yearly outdoor art market known for its eclectic taste in all things artsy, now hopes to be known for all things tasty, too.

Along with its new location at Cherry Knolls Shopping Center, directly across the street from The Streets at SouthGlenn, event promoter Robin Loughran says this year’s market will include an army of food trucks.

Yes, food trucks.

No longer the last bastion for sandwiches at construction sites, Loughran said food trucks have morphed into trendy mobile catering options offering a smorgasbord of different cuisines.

“It’s a perfect combination for us this year,” she said. “They’ve long been a hit downtown and we hope to have the largest collection of gourmet food trucks in the city at Sundays on the Streets and we’ve already got five trucks confirmed.”

A summertime staple at The Streets at SouthGlenn, Loughran also said the market’s decision move to Cherry Knolls was based on the need for more space and options for vendors.

“We’ve got a little more room to spread out, and while vendor tents are encouraged, they are not required,” she said. “We will also have more flexibility when it comes to parking and setup.”

Sundays on the Streets features the wares of local artisans, photographers and other crafty folk.

“There’s jewelry, handbags, designer accessories, baked goods and this year, we’ve added antiques,” said Loughran.

The market is held monthly on the second Sunday, beginning on Mother’s Day, May 12.

Market hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Loughran said interested vendors, artisans, musicians and food trucks should contact her directly for an application. While space is still available, she expects to be sold out soon.

“Centennial is my home, too,” she said. “And Sundays on the Streets is just one way to celebrate the people of this wonderful community and in which we live.”
