Summer is here and so are the food trucks. Food Truck Fridays returned to uptown Maumee on Memorial Day weekend. The event, which is sponsored by the Maumee Uptown Business Associa-tion, has quickly become a mainstay in uptown Maumee. “I like the food trucks and the selection,” said Terri Snyder of Maumee, who enjoyed a perch dinner from Rusty’s Road Trip during the first event on May 26. “I try to come every Friday,” she said. In addition to Rusty’s, some of the other food trucks on hand were Rosie’s Rolling Chef, the Displaced Chef, Deet’s BBQ, Nick and Nino’s, Grumpy’s on the Go and Eric’s Ice Cream. Jacky’s Depot was also on-site, along with Beastro 4740, a food truck owned by Adam and Crystal Brandt. “We love Maumee,” said Adam. “It’s been a little slow today, but it’s been steady.” The couple says that the warmer months definitely keep them busy with food truck lunch and dinner events taking place on Wednesdays through Fridays and at special events happening on the weekends. “Summer is very busy,” Adam said. In addition to the food trucks, the event also features the Maumee Farmers Market, with several vendors selling local goods, including bread, honey and kettle corn. The Deep Submergence Band performed live music during the first week, with Calen Savidge performing last weekend. Food Truck Fridays will run every Friday from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. through September 8, with the exception of the Maumee Summer Fair on August 11. The weekly events will take place at the corner of East Wayne and Conant streets, adjacent to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. The Maumee Farmers Market runs in conjunction with Food Truck Fridays. Any vendor interested in participating in the Maumee Farmers Market may call (419) 740-0064 or e-mail Malinda Ruble at maumeefarmersmarket@gmail.com for a vendor agreement. Arrowhead Business Park will also host food trucks on Wednesdays at lunch starting on June 7 and running weekly through August 30. The event takes place at 1691 Woodlands Dr. from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
