Ten-hut! Navy Yard is now a food truck hub

Philly's food truck scene is expanding once again.

The Navy Yard - where 10,000 people work - now offers a weekly venue for seven trucks at the Marine Parade Grounds (Broad Street and Intrepid Avenue.)

The LTL (Lunch Truck Lineup) was offered last year as a trial, and folks said they liked it PDQ.

Truck day is Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the lineup and menus are available on Facebook and Twitter.

The April 11 lineup is Chef Johnny Bravo’s, Cupcake Carnivale, Gigi & Big, Ka’Chi Truck, Pitruco Pizza, Sum Pig, and Vernalicious. The Navy Yard also is starting a CSA program with Greensgrow Farm, and reps will be available to explain the program,.

And if you want to follow the trucks, make it easy on yourself and hit up Chowspotter, a free food truck finder on the Web.

Also be advised:

Manayunk's StrEAT Festival is Saturday, April 13 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with 30 - count 'em - 30 food trucks along Main Street. Info is here.

The Porch at 30th Street hosts four trucks on Wednesdays and Fridays in April. Details are here.

And 10 food trucks will gather at East Passyunk Avenue at lunchtime April 25 for Dining Out for Life.
