Ahwatukee Eats Brings Food Trucks, Music and More

Ahwatukee Eats is making its debut August 20th at Phoenix’s Horizon Community Learning Center. The now monthly food truck event began in May and features food trucks, live music, and children’s crafts. This month’s event includes food trucks My Waffle Crush; Cousins Maine Lobster; Queso Good; Peace, Cheese & Happiness; DK Dogs; L.A. Roots; Phoenix Phreeze; Pour Jo Coffee; Po’ Boyz BBQ; One True Love; Dough MAMA Pizza; Bites Donuts; Emerson Fry Bread, and Flippin Rice. Vendors include FQ Studios, Glass Slippers and Cleats, The Freckled Pearl, B Naked Chocolates, Tukee’s Tamales, and Wet Shaving Products.

Ahwatukee Eats is the brainchild of Falon Kerby and Danielle Martinez, “two girls on a mission to bring food trucks to the foothills.” The girls had the idea while attending a weekly food truck event in Gilbert, a town southeast of Phoenix within the Phoenix metropolitan area, where they reside. They realized people were coming from all over Arizona to Gilbert to try the food trucks. 

The women, who work at Bell Mortgage in Ahwatukee, an urban village in Phoenix, brought the idea to their marketing department and got the blessing and sponsorship of the company. The event celebrated its one-year anniversary this past May which coincided with the Arizona Republic naming their event one of the top 10 food and drink events to do in Phoenix that month. The first event, held in May of 2015, only had four food trucks but attracted more than 300 people. With such a positive response, Kerby and Martinez have kept the event happening monthly but plan to go to make it weekly if the demand is there. 

Future Ahwatukee Eats are scheduled for September 17th, October 15th, November 19th, and December 17th from 5-9pm. For more information visit ahwatukeeeats.com.
