Here at City Paper, we love food trucks. Many an editorial meeting has been derailed by discussions of what trucks have the best bites and where to find them. But what continues to impress us across the board is how our many moveable feasts keep their menu sourcing local. Some go so far as to change their dish elements on a weekly basis depending on what’s in season. And though many can claim such a title, Outta My Huevos and Short Grain stand out as exemplary supporters of local farms. Here’s one dish from each and the farmers and purveyors who make these meals happen.
