Victoria Food Trucks: Get Ready for a Taste EXPLOSION!

In just a few short years, Victoria food trucks 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 Victoria food trucks 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.

A word of caution, many of our street food vendors change places periodically to attend festivals or events and/or operate seasonally. Be sure to check out their website or Facebook page for locations and hours of operation.

Bimo Burger Stand

Crispy fries plus tons of gravy and authentic curd = great poutine, plus a house-made burger. Bimo food truck serves it up every day.
