Consider me pretty prettyyyy pleased that one of my favorite Hartford area food trucks will be coming back to the Know Good Market this month as my sponsored vendor. Fuego Picante Food Truck, owned by Omar Bello and Jackeline Garcia, has made appearances at the market before, and they're so good that I wanted to show them off a little bit. 

Omar and Jackeline opened the truck in March of 2017. Since then they have been a staple at local breweries and markets, food truck festivals, and for private catering. At this market they"ll be serving: pork, chicken, steak and shrimp tacos, burritos and quesadillas, as well as guacamole and churros.

Who else will be there? The Cafe at Fifty-Five will be open across the street, serving coffee and crepes, Samba's Cuisine Food Truck will be offering Brazilian flavors, Mercado will have their Span-ish tapas, and CraftBird & Co. Food Truck serving fried chicken and farm fresh deliciousness. Heirloom Market at Comstock Ferre will have healthy juices and baked goods, The Butcher & Red will always be bringing the meat, Bear's BBQ will be serving... BBQ, La Mesa Food Truck will have pork sliders and empanadas, and Let's Start from Scratch is toting over her cookie dough and popsicles. And then of course, Hog River Brewing will be open and serving their Hartford made beer and The Liquorist will be shaking cocktails. 

The Know Good Market is an open air street festival held from 5-8pm on the second Thursday of each month from April-November in the Parkville neighborhood of Hartford. It features local music, food and vendors and attracts a large crowd of locals and visitors alike. It is located at 30-50 Bartholomew Ave. Hartford, CT. There is a parking lot located across the street, bike parking and is just one block from the CT Fastrak Parkville stop.
