Starting next week, Wednesday is food truck day at Tigard City Hall
City announces schedule of mobile vendors for weekly lunch visits.
The city of Tigard announced Tuesday that starting next Wednesday, March 16, a local food truck or food cart will set up shop in the main parking lot of Tigard City Hall during lunchtime every week.
The city released a seven-week schedule of upcoming mobile food vendor visits, starting with Lamy's Lamb Shack, a popular Portland-based Mediterranean food truck, next week.
This is a tasty and new approach to community building for Tigard, the city's economic development manager, Lloyd Purdy, was quoted as saying in a news release announcing the schedule. It also shows other venues around the city how a food truck could work at their work site.
One food truck or cart will be at City Hall every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. until at least April 27.
The schedule, as announced by the city Tuesday, is:
March 16: Ramy's Lamb Shack
March 23: Maiale di Volo Wood Fired Pizza
March 30: The Dump Truck
April 6: Home Plate Sliders
April 13: El Taco Yucateco
April 20: Gourmet on the Go
April 27: Ramy's Lamb Shack
Tigard is home to a few food carts, but it has no pods of the sort that are popular throughout neighboring Portland, including in the Hillsdale and Multnomah Village neighborhoods close to Tigard.
