As the Downtown Art Walk grew in popularity over the past year, so did unrelated activities like a large craft show and, of course, food trucks. Well, it looks like Main Street, which has turned into food truck alley on the second Thursday of the month, will remain empty of some trucks.
"Don Chow Tacos, @fishlips_sushi, and @indiajonesct got the boot from Main st. They said the property owners don't want us tonight," tweeted Don Chow. Nom Nom Truck added: "Just got kicked out of spot :( we will keep you posted on out next location!" They moved one block over to Spring Street, joining the Grilled Cheese Truck, Marked 5 and Coohaus.
It is unclear who forced the trucks to leave, but according to Raw Materials, an art materials store, there are "No Parking" signs lining Main between 4th and 6th.
Update: "Official word from the cops is that a large property owner doesn't want the trucks on Main St. Will tweet ot more 411 if I hear anything," Don Chow Tacos later tweeted.
