Main Street in Manayunk is the place to be for
food and drinks any day of the week—and at one event this spring, all of that
culinary creativity will be on display!
The annual Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival is
scheduled for April 14 along Main Street, just steps from your The Isle
apartment. From 11 a.m.-5 p.m. that day, indulge on the best of the best of the
local food truck scene. More than 50 trucks will set up shop along Manayunk’s
main drag to offer their dishes in an event that has become an annual favorite.
No matter your tastes, you can find something to
dive into at the StrEAT Food Festival. The city’s food truck community turns
out in force, offering everything from delectable desserts to international
flavors and American favorites. Grab a barbecue sandwich, pizza in a cone (!)
or empanadas (or one of each!) and finish it all off with a handcrafted
cannoli. In addition to the food trucks, the festival also features a number of
gourmet food vendors, offering everything from fresh produce to homemade
spices. If you’re looking to try out some new recipes at your The Isle
apartment, visiting the food festival first is a must.
If all the eating has you working up a thirst,
you can stop by the festival’s beer and wine garden, showcasing lots of
handcrafted selections from local makers. You can kick back with your brew and your
snack and take in live music at a number of stages throughout the street.
While the food festival highlights eats from
around the region, it’s also a great opportunity to support the local merchants
right here in Manayunk. Many restaurants and bars run specials throughout the
day, and a number of businesses will move their merch right out to the curb for
sidewalk sales. So as you nibble and nosh, make sure to pop into our local
businesses and give them some love as well.
Hope to see you there!
