Food Truck Tracker August 13 – 19: Find your favorite food trucks

From Southport to Porters Neck, here's where the region's food trucks will be setting up shop.

WILMINGTON—The food truck tracker is a place to find where your favorite trucks will be this week. It lists events open to the public, not catering events for offices and private parties. We’ll publish every Monday, and update throughout the week with new information.

It’s worth remembering food trucks are at the mercy of the elements and other factors. Check the link to the particular food truck before you head out, most post updates on their Facebook pages.

 Want to see your favorite on this list? Run a food truck and want to be included? Let us know at pcd@localvoicemedia.com.
