More Fun With The Urban Picnic

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

Scott Smallwood, with the Atlanta Street Food Coalition, sent me this reminder yesterday:

The Atlanta Street Food Coalition Presents The Urban Picnic

Atlanta’s Aspiring Gourmet Street Food Cart Vendors will be Open for Business during Lunch Hour at Sweet Auburn Curb Market
The Urban Picnic, presented by the Atlanta Street Food Coalition, will return to the Sweet Auburn Curb Market this week. The monthly event is held on the last Friday of every month and gives citizens of Atlanta a rare opportunity to sample and experience street food from over a dozen of Atlanta’s aspiring gourmet street food cart vendors including, Burro-Pollo Chicken Burrito Stand, Good Food Truck, King of Pops, The Pickle, Souper Jenny, Yumbii and more.
The coalition hosts monthly events to help foster a strong street food culture in the city of Atlanta and to bring attention to the need for food trucks throughout the city. The Atlanta Street Food Coalition’s ultimate goal is to lobby for and see implemented a regulatory system that encourages food trucks and street vendors who will bring healthy food options to areas of the city that are dominated by convenience stores. It is the Coalition’s belief that this movement will create new and exciting businesses in previously undeveloped and underserviced areas.

Remember my report on the last Urban Picnic I attended? Check it out here. You can get syrup on a hot dog called the Poodle (you really should try this). And I’ll get a chance to buy those ridiculously yummy sausages I passed on last time. To get you in the mood, take a look at some photos from my last visit.

Farm Cart!

There's Always Room For Souper Jenny

Wouldn’t it be fun for us all to meet up there for lunch? Who’s in? I’ll be there around 1pm. Bring cash, because most of the vendors  don’t take cards.

And you won’t even have to worry about ants at this picnic!

Urban Picnic

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

I had the good fortune to attend our city’s Urban Picnic this past Friday in support of Food Trucks in Atlanta. The event was held curbside at The Sweet Auburn Curb Market, one of Atlanta’s oldest operating markets.

It was a lovely event meant to raise awareness of what we could be enjoying on a regular basis like other cities.  Cities like Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago. All the major metropolises seem to possess what seems to be a daunting task here in Atlanta. But the Atlanta Street Food Coalition has taken on this task on behalf of all food lovers in our fair town.
