When asked about whether any food
trucks would be participating this year, market coordinator Claire
Tomlin of The Market Company said none have reached out to her and that
she's been so busy coordinating vendors, she hasn't reached out to them,
"but it's a consideration."
It's located at the former Parrot
Jungle location on the corner of Red Road (SW 57 Avenue) and Killian
Drive (SW 112 Street). They have moved the market under the Banyan tree,
closer to the main building of Pinecrest Gardens.
