Incredible Food Trucks
The food truck phenomenon continues to grow across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and there's a good reason. Today's food truck is not like anything you've ever seen before, with better quality meals, fusion cuisines, and even gourmet quality foods.

While you'll find food trucks individually in various locations, the food truck community often comes together at specific locales to offer a variety of amazing eats.

One such locale is Food Truck Alley at Aberdeen and Longwood streets on the west side of Hamilton, Ontario.

Check in with @FTAlleyHamilton on Twitter for current news and locations.

Depending on their schedules, not every truck is at any given locale at the same time, but you'll find a great selection wherever they gather. If you're into a particular food truck, check their website or Twitter feed to find out where they're headed.

Here's a run down on the food truck scene!
