Yum! Huntsville’s growing food truck presence.

If you live in the Huntsville/Madison area you can’t help but notice the growing presence of food trucks in the area. We have food trucks dedicated to lobster, crepes, donuts and even bacon. No longer is a food truck a place you can grab a burger or a hot dog but rather specialized niche where you can find whatever your heart desires.


Some are concerned that food trucks don’t have to follow the same health department guidelines as standard restaurants but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Food truck vendors are regulated by the Madison County Health Department just as restaurants are and must display their inspection results.

Late last year Huntsville passed a city ordinance that allows food trucks on the streets downtown everyday. This change along with the open container law changes are meant to encourage more downtown events and gathering. If you are interested but nervous about the food truck craze you can try them out during Huntsville’s Food Truck Festival that runs all summer long on Church St downtown. You can catch our local food trucks all over town and if you want something specific you can catch up with most of the trucks on Facebook. http://ourvalleyevents.com/huntsville-food-trucks-directory/

I highly recommend you give it a try. You won’t be disappointed and this girl for one hopes that Huntsville continues to encourage more food trucks to the area in the future.
