From Trash to Treasure: the Food Trucks at Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market

This massive market every Sunday in New Milford features antiques, rare finds, farm stands, and anything you’d need to furnish a home. Sure, you have to rummage through some trash to get to the treasures, but that’s part of the fun.

They have lots of smaller carts and stands serving up hot dogs, lemonade, Italian ices, and breakfast sandwiches that could be hidden treasures, and they have some of the food trucks we’re all heard of that might not be as much of a treasure as you’d hoped.

Some of your taco options at Bodega Taco Bar in Fairfield

Soon on the Bodega taco truck!

Update:  we talked with Mario at Bodega and he dished all about the new truck.  The plan is to have the truck out every day, whether they are catering, hitting up an office building, a very hungry location, or at an event.  They’ll be equipped for tacos, burritos, and more.  Finally, you can fulfill your dream of having your very own burrito party!  Oh, and you just might see the truck in as few as two weeks…

Yeah, we nearly burst like a piñata when we heard the news…Bodega Taco Bar, located in Darien and Fairfield, will be launching a food truck and a catering biz starting this April.  Umm, yes please!  It’s hard to beat those tacos, oh, and we’ve had nearly every single one they serve.
