Food Trucks in Victoria: Get Ready for a Taste EXPLOSION!

In just a few short years, food trucks in Victoria have burst on the scene and become a burgeoning business. We’ve gone from one hot dog vendor on Store Street to a dozens of options popping up all over the region in just the past 5 years or so. And there is definitely no shortage of variety!

Many of the food trucks in Victoria use local produce, dairy, meats, breads and cheeses in their creations. When you support these street vendors, you are also supporting local farmers and other small businesses which helps keep our community’s economy running.
