Philly Mobile Food Association Teams Up With The Navy Yard For Their Fourth Lunch Truck Lineup, Thursday October 18

With temperature highs in the 70s becoming few and far between, we’re looking for every excuse to enjoy the great outdoors in the City of Brotherly Love.

This Thursday, October 18 marks possibly one of the last days of the year to enjoy the delicious supply of roving food truck gatherings in Philly without the need for a winter coat and scarf.

For the fourth time this year, the Navy Yard and Philly MFA invite hungry lunch crowds to take part in their afternoon roundup of curbside chefs at the Marine Parade Grounds from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

The rain or shine, pay-as-you-go lineup includes helpings from Vernalicious, Lucky Old Souls, Sweet Box Truck, Foo Truck, Gigi & Big R’s and Pitrucco Pizza.

Step away from the computer, collect your Septa tokens (or take advantage of the Navy Yard’s free parking) and get a little social on your lunch break.

Lunch Truck Gathering At The Navy Yard
Where: Marine Parade Ground, Intrepid and Broad Streets
When: Thursday, October 18, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Cost: Pay as you go
