Food trucks in Wynwood

The food truck sensation changed the way the world does food, and Miami is no exception. A modern spin on authentic street food culture, these “meals on wheels” whip up everything from simple burgers and fries to dim sum, nitrogen-infused ice cream, creative grilled cheese sandwiches and traditional Cuban and Latin dishes. These food trucks are a gourmet alternative to fast food and often act as test kitchens before a chef goes brick and mortar.

Miami’s food truck craze has reached maturity, with a number of beloved emerging and established food trucks and events throughout the destination. While food trucks are constantly on the go by their very nature, they can be relied upon to hit monthly meet-ups around Miami. These are just a handful of the places and events where you can find Miami’s favorite food trucks.

Wynwood Art Walk Block Party

Likely Miami’s most popular monthly food truck event, Wynwood’s Art Walk Block Party turns into a late-night celebration where art, food and drink collide. While local galleries bring in DJs and keep their doors open late, attendees can wind their way through the ever-changing graffiti on the Wynwood Walls and then head to the food trucks for a choice of delicious cuisine from around the world.

The Wharf Miami

Since opening its doors in November 2017, The Wharf Miami has reshaped the food truck game by providing a permanent place for several of Miami’s best-known trucks. This 30,000-square-foot venue really burst onto the scene when soccer star and fashion icon David Beckham held a World Cup watch party here in 2018. Don’t miss Cracked by Chef Adrianne, a chef-driven farm-to-truck concept along with a food truck version of local favorite, Mojo Donuts and Fried Chicken, because who doesn’t love donuts and fried chicken?
