New ‘Food Truck Friday’ Series, presented by Volume One and Silver Spring Foods to launch in July

The Chippewa Valley food truck scene is quickly evolving. With a recent softening in Eau Claire regulation, the developing food-truck frenzy is likely to grow even more. But with so many options and trucks constantly on the move (and a limited season in general), experiencing them all can be a challenge. 

Enter Volume One’s new Food Truck Friday event series. This carnival of cuisine, presented in partnership with Silver Spring Foods, kicks off July 13 in downtown Eau Claire – in the parking lot between N. Farwell and N. Barstow streets (aka the “Railroad Lot”). Up to eight food, snack, and drink establishments will open for business for lunch and dinner (11am-8pm), providing the opportunity to sample and feast upon the work of multiple mobile chefs. It’s the perfect chance to take a break from the office, grab some grub, and snag a patch of grass or a bench by the river – or bring the whole family down after work and take in the summer sun. The event takes place across from Galloway Grille, where one can enjoy a cool beer on their patio while enjoying a meal. Food Truck Friday will feature a slightly different line up of vendors each month, including Basil Wyndthorp's, Life Support BBQ, Holy Donuts, The Hubb, ECDC, and more. It’s also sponsored in part by Visit Eau Claire.  The event, which heads to Eau Claire City Council next week for final approval, will run one Friday a month through October.

More information, including the full season schedule, complete vendor list, menus and more will be available soon online and in Volume One Magazine.
