Over the past decade, food trucks have evolved from a novelty to a necessity at any outdoor festival, farmer’s market or community gathering. In September 2020, 9A Eats even became the first food truck park in Westchester County.
A recent popular party trend is to rent a food truck. They come and cook for you and your guests and they don’t need to be in your house. They serve the food in their own containers, so you don’t have to worry too much about plates, utensils and clean up. There are so many different food trucks to choose from, that you can rent whichever one appeals to your particular food interests.
I researched and came up with this Westchester County food truck guide listing food trucks that service Westchester County. Not all of the trucks listed below are based in Westchester County, but they will travel to cater a party or event. Some trucks have a regular schedule of locations where they park. Some are affiliated with a restaurant and are only available for catering. Please check each food truck’s Instagram page and website for the most up-to-date information.
