We took a time out today. We literally put ourselves in the corner - the food truck corner - for the first installment of our second annual officially unofficial Squamish Valley Music Festival Food Truck Tour.

This year we brought along our friends from the #exploresquamish street team to help us taste, test and explore the very best of the SVMF food trucks who came from both near and far, all with a story to tell. This year's food-truck line-up did not disappoint.

So what did we love? Here's our list of our top food truck picks at this year's Squamish Valley Music Festival.

 

This Little Piggy

 

  1. Burger Bus & Big Dogs Diner: Organic Grassfed Bison Jalapeno Cheese & East Van Philly Steak Sandwich. Homemade, handcut meats and handpressed burgers all served on organic, gluten-free, potato flour buns.
     
  2. This Little Piggy: "The Big Bad Wolf Sandwich". THIS is good. Pulled pork, bacon, chorizo, cheese & caramelized onions on a fresh Portugese bun. Chips and homemade salsa to dip.
     
  3. Whistler Wood Fired Pizza Co: "The Works". A Squamish locals cult fave that is not to be missed.
