The Metro News – Cloud Nine Cotton Candy

The Metro News – Cloud Nine Cotton CandyBob Belcher might not be the biggest fan of food trucks, but Vancouverites seem to have a different opinion.

For the third year in a row the annual Food Cart Fest is back again and open to the public with an expanded repertoire this summer including DJ’s, live music, ping pong tournaments, and plenty of food.

Located in the Olympic Village, a steady rotation of 40 food carts will be there every Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. offering everything from homemade popsicles to waffles to curry.

Sandy and Jason Espedido are selling their homemade cotton candy this summer at the annual Food Cart Fest located in the Olympic Village on Sundays from 12 to 5 p.m.
“We’re really excited to be there,” Jason said. “It’s great to be able to get out here and be able to show off some of our flavours, and also try out some of these other food trucks as well.”

The Espedido’s company is called Cloud Nine Cotton Candy and they offer 20 different flavours, but they were just one of several choices available.

Daniel Fazio, brand and marketing director of Food Truck Fest, said the event is continuing to grow because people want a nice, family-friendly event to go to on Sundays.

“We usually get about three- to five-thousand people every week,” he noted. “They come because it’s about good food, community, and hanging out in a comfortable environment.”
