Nova Scotians can enjoy locally grown and produced food right from the… truck. Select Nova Scotia is sponsoring a food truck rally in Wolfville on Thursday, Nov. 14.
The Food Wolf, Tin Pan Alley and Nomad Gourmet will all participate in the rally taking place 6 p.m.
to 9 p.m. in the town centre parking lot. The rally is a part of the Devour! Food Film Festival happening in Wolfville, Nov. 13-17.
“The trucks at the rally will each have different menus all with local ingredients,” said Agriculture Minister Keith Colwell. “In addition to some of their regular unique dishes, each truck will prepare one seafood dish as well. It’s a great opportunity for people to try something new.”
Select Nova Scotia will also launch a new 2014 calendar at the rally. Each month features a local producer, local chef and mouth-watering recipe.
“We’re excited to be in the heart of our province’s agricultural region–it’s symbolic of coming to the source of our diverse local food supply,” said Natalie Chavarie, owner of The Food Wolf and co-chair of the Food Truck Association of Nova Scotia. “Working with local produce is part of the passion and creativity that drives our work as small business owners in a dynamic sector of the food industry.”
