The first ‘Food Truck Friday’ event in downtown Sevierville is a hit! Now, if we could add an evening from 6-8 pm so people who can’t leave their jobs for lunch could visit then it would be even more exciting! Due to fall break, I was able to go downtown to see this event and here is what I found.
Actually, coffee comes first. My first stop was Courthouse Donuts to get a skim Mocha Latte from the coffee cart by Refill Coffee. It is made to order right there and you got a free donut with your coffee. The vendor was very nice and well prepared to make about any coffee that you would like. He will visit several more times so check the Facebook page for Courthouse Donuts because that is how I found out about it. Mine was perfect!
Next, I followed the downtown workers and visitors to the gazebo area for lunch hour.
One concern I had was how to eat lunch from a food truck with nowhere to sit—but Sevierville Commons Association had already considered that. There was a nice, long table to use for lunch. I like how it promoted community and conversations among lunch goers. Well done!
Crepes are a specialty food and take a few minutes to make, but the final product can be sweet or savory perfection.
A Nutella and strawberry crepe. Foodie heaven.
I remember this vendor from the Bruce Street Brewfest and it was quite popular.
Lines began to build up after 11:30 with the local lunch crowd. It was a good sight to behold.
Knoxwurst offered some good high protein, Paleo diet choices who those trying to reduce their carbs. Leslie Strader let me take a picture of her order to get this pic.
By noon, the crowds were building and lines were 10-15 people long. This proves that people will enjoy food trucks and gathering for lunch downtown.
This vendor has shops in Morristown and Jefferson City. Follow up lunch with something sweet!
If you like frozen treats then this food truck will ‘hit the spot.’ They also offer samples.
Food trucks have been a foodie phenomenon for the past few years so it is exciting to see them downtown. The schedule for the rest of this month can be seen in the first photo in this blog story. Check the selections for the coming weeks. Many people work in places that won’t allow them enough time to attend Food Truck Fridays so I hope that an evening could be added in the future. There is certainly something for everyone.
Don’t be in a hurry because food trucks cook and prepare the meals fresh as you order them. Enjoy the sunshine, good weather, and friends. Also, try some things that may not be easily found in this area.
Fridays just got more interesting to dine out and about in Sevierville…
