Foodie’s paradise returns to Saanich this summer, with the district announcing two local parks have been approved to host food trucks all summer long.
From July 1st to September 9th, six local food trucks will rotate between Cadboro-Gyro and Beckwith Parks as part of Saanich’s Food Truck Program.
Last summer, three parks were given the green light by council to host food trucks, as part of a pilot project originally developed in 2019.
The $40,000 pilot project finally came to fruition in 2021, after being postponed due to the pandemic.
“We received great feedback on our Food Truck Pilot Program in 2021 and I’ve heard excitement in our community to see the program return,” said Parks, Trails and Recreation Committee Chair and Councillor Judy Brownoff.
“The program supports local entrepreneurs and gives residents one more reason to enjoy our wonderful parks this summer.”
This year’s vendors include Country Crepes, Greek on The Street, Cup-a-Roni, Sub-Zero Ice Cream, Candytime, and Holy Cow Mini Donuts.
Vendors will choose their own operating hours between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily. You can keep up to date on their schedules via the Victoria Food Trucks website.
