Food truck hang-out brings community together

MEDFORD, Ore. – Sometimes locals can live in the Rogue Valley their entire life and still find new places to explore.┬áThat’s what one local discovered Friday at ‘Food Truck Fridays’ in Medford.

The weekly hang-out spot not only offers a variety of food trucks but a community. Though it looks like a small gathering on the outside, inside is plenty of food and friends.

“I think it’s really cool. I think a lot more people should get into it honestly. I think cars are a good way to get out there and have a good time and also be safe,” said Iris Gutschi, Rogue Valley resident.

Food Truck Fridays happen weekly. You can find them in the parking lot behind Tinseltown.
