It's Farm to Food Truck Time!

Farm2FoodTruck IV!

On Saturday, November 10th we are hosting a farmers' market feast for you, our friends and fans. 20 local farmers and vendors, 15 gourmet food trucks, 5 challengers and an estimated 2,000 attendees will all come together to celebrate our second birthday and compete in our Farm to Food Truck Challenge IVYou'll be able to taste the market from our challengers and celebrate our two years at SoCo Collection! 

Fifteen gourmet food trucks will serve food during the market, with five of our gourmet food truck chefs competing in an epic challenge. Chefs will source farm fresh ingredients from our certified farmers. A $30.00 donation to our non-profit gets you a sampling plate from each of our five competition trucks! Friends, fans, and previous Top Chop Judges will join together to feast at our long communal tables in the middle of the market to vote with their forks and choose the next Top Chop Truck!

Best Of Award-- Best Farmers' Market 2012

Thank you Costa Mesa for making us the BEST farmers' market in Orange County! And special thanks to Dave Leiberman for giving us an honorable mention in the OC Weekly. Your support makes our market great! Our farmers grow fresh certified California produce, our rancher raises grass-fed beef, free range chicken, and pastured pork, and our food trucks and vendors make delicious gourmet foods just for you!  And, of course, we have the very best shoppers--YOU! Vote with your forks and the family and friends on over to eat and shop local with us. Read OC Weekly article

With all that cooking you'll be doing for the holidays, you'll definitely need your culinary tools in tip top shape! Strangely we're saying this sentence: Yes, please bring your knives and sharp objects to the market! Arnie will be there to get your tools chef-ready. You can check out his prices here.
