1. Court Square Food Truck Rodeo

Thursdays when the weather is nice, downtown’s Court Square turns into a food truck rodeo at 11 a.m. This has been the best place to try out new trucks lately, with about a dozen trucks hanging out until 2 p.m. Keep up with each week’s lineup by following Downtown Memphis on Twitter.

2. Local breweries

Memphis brewery taprooms are the next best bet for finding a food truck to try. On most days that they're open, there's usually at least one food truck posted up at Wiseacre, High Cotton, Memphis Made, and Ghost River.

3. Farmers markets

You can find food trucks and carts on Tuesdays at the Church Health Center Farmers Market (10 a.m. - 2 p.m.) and on Saturday mornings at the Memphis Farmers Market (7 a.m. - 1 p.m.) and the Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market (9 a.m. - 1 p.m.).

Dixon Gallery & Gardens hosts Food Truck Fridays spring through fall, and FedExForum hosts Food Truck Fridays in the summer.

Of course, there's also the annual Mid-South Food Truck Fest, which will be held on May 13, 2017. Expect upwards of 70 food trucks from all across the southeast (and beyond) gathered at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

5. Memphis Food Truck Twitter List

I’ve put together an ongoing list of Memphis food trucks’ Twitter accounts that you can subscribe to. Individual accounts update their location and schedules, though some are more active than others.
