While various municipalities struggle with rules for food trucks, Larkin Square has taken a bold stance on Tuesday evenings: Come on down!
Starting next week, a variety of food trucks have been invited to park and sell their wares from 5 to 8 p.m. every Tuesday at Larkin Square, Seneca and Swan streets. The roving trucks will join the permanent Square 1 Sandwiches, which is operated from a picturesque 1964 silver Airstream trailer by Harry Zemsky, and the Larkin ice Cream Truck.
Invited trucks include Lloyd, R&R BBQ, Roaming Buffalo, Whole Hog, Sweet Hearth, Ooh La La Boutique. Amy’s Truck may join the group in the future. The event will be held all summer.
Speakers outside will play the music of the Buffalo bands that are heard Wednesday nights in Larkin Square, and beer, wine and soft drinks will also be available for purchase. Those who attend can enjoy the games, including hula hoops, pickleball, Kan Jam and ladder toss.
"We enjoy hosting Buffalo’s beloved food trucks in Larkinville, and it’ll be fun to have so many of them here together every Tuesday," said Harry Zemsky. "We’re ready to make Larkin Square a happy hour and dinner destination."
