Beautiful fall weather has arrived, offering the perfect opportunity for some outdoor dining. You know food trucks will all but go into hibernation come winter. So, fill up on your food truck nosh now! Lucky for you, the Food Truck Food Court runs through October 26 and Pearl Market welcomes some food trucks each week too.
The mall food court is so 1980. Columbus Commons has reimagined the food court, now under the sunny sky with green grass under your feet. The Food Truck Food Court sets up truck in the south end of the park each Thursday from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. through the end of the month.
Diners fill their bellies with deliciousness from eight staple trucks, plus two special guest trucks of the month. This month, choose from Cupzilla, Angry Wiener, Giant Eagle Market District, Mikey's Late Night Slice, Kinetic, Paddy Wagon, Pitabilities, and Mya's Fried Chicken. Please note that the trucks do not sell beverages, but you can still wet your whistle when you swing by the Columbus Commons beverage tent, located near the carousel. But remember, drinks will run you $2, cash only, so bring along a few greenbacks. Or hit the Pepsi machine near Tortilla, which does take a credit card.
As the weather cools, if you need a little warm-me-up, visit Hemingway Coffee House across the park at 175. South Third. You'll find delicious coffee, tea, cocoa and even spiced apple cider.
Likely you're aware that you can find food at Pearl Market, what with it being a farmers' market and all. But did you know you'll find more than just farm-fresh produce? If you need to fill your work-weary belly at lunch time, on Tuesdays and Fridays the Pearl and Lynn alleys host a number of fabulous food trucks and vendors.
