And finally, I rarely ever do this and full disclosure this is my company: This Sunday night the Orlando Food Truck Bazaar returns with a TON of improvements over last year: Each truck will have a $5 tasting plate so you can taste your way around the Bazaar! This has never been done in Orlando not to mention Central Florida. We really want to improve the food truck event experience so we’ll have a lot of tables you can put your food on and enjoy your dinner, a kid’s area to stash your kids and live music from a singer/guitarist! Food Truck Bazaar is this Sunday 5 to 8 in front of Fashion Square Mall.
