Food truck park parks downtown

Located on 1001 South Lincoln St. is the Amarillo food truck park and farmers market that opened on July 30, 2018. The park is open from 6:30 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Friday, and 6:30 a.m. to 3 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

The park is located close to the Amarillo baseball stadium that is set to open in April 2019.

“Eventually when people get done watching baseball or something they can just come over here and get themselves a corn dog or a funnel cake,” Brian Horne, Boydston’s Fair Foods truck cook, said.

Park operators say they hope to have multiple food trucks in it with diverse options for the customers.

“They could bring in so many different varieties of food whether it be soup, Asian food, Mexican food, Italian food, Greek food, regular Americana food, just anything,” Joe Lindvay, Palo Duro Canyon plant utility operator, said.

Lindvay recently ate lunch at Boydston’s Fair Foods in the park and said he believes that the food is good quality at a good price.

Horne said he believes that the park is in a good location because it is in an area of downtown where there are not many restaurants.

“I mean downtown is getting really good and looking like a place where people want to go now so yeah I’d go,” Julie Bond, an education major, said.

According to Horne, the specialty of the Boydston’s Fair Foods truck is their funnel cake.

“The only thing I ever eat at the fair is funnel cake so yeah that’s a good idea,” Bond said.

Lindvay said he believes that the park will serve as a great way for people to connect with one another. He also said he thinks the park will provide the people who go to it with nostalgic memories.

“I think it’s a good way for people to get a break. To get things off their mind and be entertained,” Lindvay said.
