Food truck tracker March 2 – March 8: Find your favorite trucks [Free read]

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.

Some events are not scheduled until later in the week, so check back for updates!

It’s also worth remembering food trucks are usually at the mercy of the weather — 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.
