If you love food truck grub, you’ll soon have a weekly market to satisfy your street food cravings.

Roundup, a company that helps launch food trucks in the region, will introduce its weekend Roundup Market later this month. The Roundup Market is a food truck park with food, music and family-friendly entertainment. It will be held in Zabeel Park on Fridays from 9am to 9pm and in Dubai Creek on Saturdays from 3pm to 11pm.

The Roundup Market will feature each of the company’s food trucks in one 20,000 square foot location. Though they’re managed by the same company, the food trucks are all run by their own teams with different themes and food served up at each.

Some of the food trucks from the Roundup portfolio to be featured at the markets include Calle Tacos, a Tex-Mex food truck franchise from the US; The Mob Truck, which serves up sliders, wings and fries; GObai, a Goan fusion food truck; and Bio Bean, with roasted premium coffee and snacks that include vegan and gluten-free options.

In addition to all that street food, the weekly Roundup Market will have a children’s play area, TV screens, flea market shops and more at both locations.

The Roundup Market weekend will launch October 23 and continue each weekend thereafter. For more information, follow Roundup at www.facebook.com/RoundupUAE.
