Whole Foods Aventura Street Food Festival: Indoor Food Truck Tomorrow
Indoors Street Food. Come on in!
Miami is known for outdoor eats. Food trucks revolutionized the Magic City's street food scene four years ago, and now they're going indoors. At Whole Foods for a day anyway.
Whole Foods Market in Aventura is celebrating Miami's street food scene by transforming their store into a street food festival tomorrow from 5 to 8 p.m.,= and you're invited.

The street food festival will benefit Casablanca Academy , a non-profit school for students with autism. The money raised will go towards providing high-quality programs and expanded treatment options in South Florida.
A homemade food truck, outdoor lighting and scenic vegetation will adorn the store. Live music will be provided by the Jeff Egan Duo from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Meanwhile on the food side, there will be sustainable, ethically produced dishes like cheese pinchos, Moroccan lamb gyros, jugo de piña (made from real pineapple, of course), minuto catfish sandwich on a brioche bun, and vegetarian picadillo stuffed crepes. Dishes range from $2 to $10 and the event is cash only. Bring the kids -- it's a family affair -- but leave the dogs at home.
