Updated: Apr 5

Introducing food trucks into a rural area like Valencia County can bring about a multitude of benefits, enriching the local community in various ways.

Hey there, Valencia County Vecinos! Let's taco 'bout something that's got our taste buds doing the salsa lately: food trucks in Belen and Los Lunas! These little mobile kitchens are not just about chowing down; they're like culinary superheroes bringing joy, flavor, and community vibes to our towns.

Diverse Culinary Delights:

So, picture this: you're strolling down the streets of Belen or Los Lunas, and suddenly, you catch a whiff of something utterly irresistible. Is it Parker's Pizza firing up their wood-fired pies, or maybe it's Som-Tin-Ta-Eat dishing out pulled pork sandwiches?

But hold your horses, folks! That's not all. Double Cup Coffee Truck is there to save us from groggy mornings with their caffeine fixes, while Blue Line Grill grills up mouthwatering goodies that'll make your taste buds high-five each other. And of course, who could resist the sizzle of Sanchez Tacos or the fresh catch from Luna's Seafood?

Then there's Tacos El Tio Raspu serving up tacos hotter than a summer day in Valencia County, and Better Ate Than Never with their comfort food that's basically a hug in a bun. Last but not least, El Super Taco is here to remind us why we love authentic Mexican flavors so darn much!

 And oh boy, don't get me started on the cotton candy magic from Ordinarily Beautiful Cotton Candy!

Community Engagement and Revitalization:

Now, let's talk about the vibe these food trucks bring. They're like the life of the party, turning public spaces into foodie wonderlands. Picture Anna Becker Park in Belen or Heritage Park in Los Lunas transformed into bustling hubs of deliciousness. Families picnic, friends reunite, and strangers become instant buddies over shared plates of goodness.

Economic Empowerment:

But hey, let's not forget about the folks behind these food trucks. They're the real MVPs, turning their culinary dreams into reality one tasty dish at a time. By supporting them, we're not just filling our bellies; we're also helping our local economy thrive. Buying local when we can means so much to our hard-working entreprenuers.

Cultural Enrichment:

It's like a culinary buffet. Whether it's pizza, Mexican classics, or seafood delights, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
