The following is blog post from our sponsor Manayunk Development Corporation.
Philadelphia’s historic Manayunk neighborhood is reclaiming its heritage as an eclectic hot spot for the city’s many devoted “foodies.” On September 29 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Main Street in Manayunk will be lined with some of Philadelphia’s best food trucks for the first-ever Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival. The festival will serve as the kick-off for Manyaunk’s Restaurant Week beginning Sunday, September 30 and running until Friday, October 5. Participating restaurants will create 3 course prix-fixe meals for either $10, $20, or $30.
Due to district regulations, food trucks are not allowed to sell food in Manayunk at any other time throughout the year, but the festival will gather trucks from all over the city and bring them to Main Street for just one day!
More than twenty food trucks will park along Main St. from Green Lane to Shurs Lane, facing the sidewalk for pedestrian access. The possibilities are endless when tasting from these food trucks as dishes will range from Asian delicacies to tacos to gourmet cupcakes. Visitors are encouraged to stroll the street, taste the offerings from their favorite trucks, and sit and enjoy the food at picnic-style seating areas along the sidewalk.
As an added surprise, a secret ingredient has been named to be included in at least one dish made by every food truck and restaurant. The secret ingredient is: APPLE! Trucks will prepare specialty items such as spiced apple cider pops, an “Apple Jack” burger, grilled cheese with apples, apple chutney on hot dogs, and much, much more!
Gourmet Food Courts and farmers markets will also be set up in two of the street-side parking lots. In these areas visitors can shop from gourmet food vendors selling homemade oils, spices, butters, breads, etc. along with farm stands selling locally grown produce. Cotton St. which will be closed during the event to be filled with extra seating and a stage for live music!
With its classic storefronts, beautiful trails, and towpath along the canal, Manayunk offers a prime location to take a break from the city and enjoy a Saturday outside tasting the best of what Philadelphia food trucks have to offer.
Trucks and vendors are still being accepted! For more information, please visit www.manayunk.com.

Few things would make the Food Truck experience even better. Shorter lines? Controlled climate? Well, how about credit card use at the trucks themselves. Our new advertiser is bringing quick, secure, and awesome mobile credit card payments to iPhones and we need your help to ask the trucks to accept them. The fees are really low (under 3%) and there’s no reason cash has to be the only choice in 2011. We’re talking to truck owners to try to convince them to accept credit cards, but if you feel strongly about it, feel free to ask your favorite truck operators. And if you’re interested in playing around with the service, check Square out, signup is free.

As another summer passes, we bid farewell to lovely Penn and move on to bigger and better things (hopefully?).  That means that PennFoodTrucks will have to do without it’s loyal ringkeepers and will have to venture on its own into the wild that is University City.  Please help take care of it and let me know if there’s anything I can do for you or the mobile-dining community.  In the meantime, I’ve ventured off to New York where the only decent food truck I can find sells $6 waffles wafels.  Farewell, good friends.  And happy eating!

Our friends at FoodTrux.com told us today that the owners of Lucky’s Mexican Spot are opening a new Indian food truck on campus this fall!  Given the lack of diversity in Indian options, this could be a boon for truck enthusiasts at Penn.  Stay tuned for more details.
