The Second Annual Vendy Awards have been scheduled for Saturday, July 28th. At The Lot at 39th and Market, food writer Joy Manning and chef Marcie Turney will be judging 8-10 street food vendors nominated by the great people of Philadelphia in a sidewalk cook off. The general public can buy tickets to the event to enjoy food and beer all while supporting The Food Trust through fundraising.
The Vendy Awards started out in NYC in 2005 and they were so successful that cities like Philadelphia and Los Angeles have picked up their own. Last year the winner of the Philly Vendy Cup was Gigi and Big R and the People’s Choice went to Cucinca Zapata while SweetBox took home the Dessert prize. Nominate your favorite food truck or sidewalk cart today to show your appreciation for your daily lunch spot. And buy your tickets at the Vendy website fast, the event is sure to sell out — and even if there were any left at the door, they cost more.
