The same folks putting on the Mobile Food Rodeo are corralling trucks for a new pod at the Fremont Sunday Market. Up to ten of them will park there from 11 to 4 starting February 19. For now it’s a monthly thing but "will become weekly as the weather improves," according to event manager Danniel Linn.
Linn and fellow organizers are busy getting a contingent together for other happenings including Fremont Outdoor Movies. Pod "pop-ups" are in the pipeline for Pioneer Square this summer, Linn added. Of course the Rodeo, with its 35 trucks, booze garden, and whatnot, is the granddaddy of their events, and two of them are planned for 2012. Linn divulged the first one will take place April 28 at 3501 Phinney Ave North. The second Rodeo is happening September 15 but a location is still up in the air. (It’s looking like somewhere in South Lake Union.)
Full disclosure: Seattle Met sponsored Mobile Food Rodeo 2011.
