Chattanooga Market will salute entrepreneurs of the food industry -- folks who developed a great food product and took it on the road (literally) -- when its Street Food Festival is held Sunday, June 22, in First Tennessee Pavilion.

Steve Brehm, market manager, estimates 30 food trucks will be on-site offering a range of foods from crepes and Cuban dishes to baguettes and waffles. In addition to the usual food trucks that pull into Sunday's market, several more are driving up from Atlanta for this event, he notes.

"Most of these are already at the market nearly every week," he says. "One of the main differences at this event is that we will be pulling the bulk of them out into the street so that they are featured right as everyone walks into the complex."
