The final KNOW GOOD Market of the season is here, and with it chilly temperatures and food to warm your insides. Join us along with our vendor of the month, the Banh Meee food truck, as we indulge in street food, beer, and coffee while dancing to the DJ and catching up with friends. 

Opened in the summer of 2017, the Banh Meee truck serves two of Vietnam's best known dishes: banh mi and pho, along with a rotating number of lesser known items that owner, Dung Tran, hopes to introduce to the Greater Hartford community. The Banh Meee truck can frequently be found parked at Mortensen Riverfront Plaza during the week, and Hanging Hills Brewery and Hog River Brewery on weekends. At the KNOW GOOD Market he'll be serving Pho Ga (with chicken), Pho Bo (with beef brisket), Bun Bo Ho (a noodle dish with beef slices, pork meatballs, and chicken chu lau in a spicy broth with veggies), spicy coleslaw with chicken, pork egg rolls with vermicelli noodles, banh mi with cha lau (chicken sausage), Vietnamese iced coffee, and jasmine flavored iced tea.
