The second annual Great Food Truck Derby will be rolling onto the grounds of the Hayground School in Bridgehampton on August 9. There will be beer; there will be wine; there will be tacos, crepes, grilled cheese, pupusas, vegetarian pate, blondies and all sorts of other good things from street food vendors, who will travel from far (like New York City) and wide (like Water Mill). Confirmed participants include Wandering Palate, Hamptons Coffee Company, Solber Pupusa, Palenque, Montaco, Sweet’tauk, Hamptons Foodie, Eat Me Drink Me and Blondies.
The derby will coincide with the weekly farmers market held at Hayground, which includes games and activities for children, and you may also see a gaggle of Swedish chefs—in residence at Hayground as part of a four-day culinary olympics (seriously).
Derby attendees will also get to tour Jeff’s Kitchen, named after founding parent Jeff Salaway, who helped birth the idea of a teaching kitchen as part of the school’s daily curriculum. Today, a rotating group of students—ages 5 to 13—takes biweekly shifts planning, preparing and serving the lunch to the entire student and teacher body.
Derby tickets are $60 and include a dish from each trucks; at least 20 trucks will be there. A $75 ticket gets you the addition bonus of a subscription to Edible East End, delivered to right to your door. Snag yours here.
