A six-week "Food Truck Market" series is happening in the parking lot at Walt Whitman Shops in Huntington Station noon-7 p.m. every Thursday to Sunday from Sept. 24 to Nov. 1.

About eight to 10 trucks will participate each day, along with arts and crafts booths. The series is organized by the Famous Food Festival, which has run other pop-up food truck events around the metro area.

This week’s food vendors — some food trucks, some set up with tables and tents — include Big Black Food Truck (American comfort food), La Bella (panini, tacos, sliders, cannoli), Rolling Smoke (hickory-smoked barbecue), Sam's Fried Ice Cream and Sweetwater Ices.

On the drinks front, Springbrook Hollow Farm Distillery and Athletic Brewing Co. will be on hand.

This event is weather permitting and does not offer seating.

To encourage contactless ordering and payment, festivalgoers are encouraged to download the Food Eaze app, which includes all participating vendors. Customers who download the app receive a free nonalcoholic beer from Athletic Brewing.

Food Truck Market runs noon-7 p.m. Thursdays-Sundays Sept. 24-Nov. 1 at Walt Whitman Shops mall, 60 Walt Whitman Rd. in Huntington Station. Weekly vendor lineups can be found on Famous Food Market's Instagram and Facebook pages, as well as its website.
