Meanwhile, down in Orlando Mark Baratelli has put together a new event for that city: The Food Truck Bazaar. This event takes place on Tuesday, March 29th from 7-10pm at 4400 S. Orange Ave. in Orlando. Trucks participitating in the Orlando even include:
Downtown: Corner of Orange and Washington. Tues – Fri 11:30am – 2:30pm, Thurs – Sat nights 10pm – 3am-ish. Big Wheel Provisions is a food company that uses only local ingredients and meat in the private food events, catering jobs and prepared meals.
At events around town, this Winter Park-based restaurant usually features a giant beer truck with a small food truck owned by a separate company serving lobster products. But since no one can serve alcohol at this iteration fo the bazaar, they will just be bringing the lobster truck with them.
You can find this truck almost every Saturday at the Dr Phillips Farmers Market and also a few nights per week at World Of Beer at Dr. Phillips. “We got into the BBQ biz out of the love for smoking meats in our backyard over the last 11 years and after taking 3rd place in people choose at the 2nd annual Orlando BBQ contest and competing with some top names in Orlando we decided to do a food truck as it was a fun way to get our name out on the street and see where that may take us in the future.”
