Leed's Briggate Food Trucks

Briggate is a pedestrianized shopping street in the middle of the town center of Leeds. From here there are many arcades and other pedestrian only streets that seem to go on forever. Briggate is home to stores like Marks & Spencer, Harvey Nichols, House of Fraser and H & M. There are restaurants and coffee shops mixed in as well as street vendors. On the fourth Sunday of each month there are food trucks.
Unfortunately for Dan and me, we had been to another part of town for the day and missed out on the festivities. We now know were to be on the fourth Sunday. Notice the American flags on the school bus, they were serving American BBQ, the "it" food at the moment in Leeds.
Baked goods, Latin food, BBQ, seafood, sausages and crepes were just some of the foods for sale. They must have been doing well, a lot of the items were sold out when we arrived. I don't know if these food trucks operate on a daily basis in other parts of town, but it's nice to see them getting this kind of attention. During the week, the shopping district is pretty busy, but the weekends are crazy around here, so they got a lot of exposure.
