Local bloggers Mack Male and Sharon Yeo started What the Truck in Edmonton last year—a series of events that each gathered together Edmonton food trucks in one place so hungry guests could “truck hop” and try a variety of dishes in one vibrant, community-oriented setting. What the Truck had a very successful first season and will resume in 2013. Check the What the Truck website for event times.
