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.
