In celebration of the Food Truck Fest’s first anniversary, the Greenfield District Corp. (GDC) gathered celebrities and influencers in the recently concluded “Car Boot Sale” at the Mayflower Parking Area of Greenfield District.
Atty. Duane A.X. Santos, GDC executive vice president, said the Food Truck Fest is the biggest gathering of food trucks parked regularly in one venue in Metro Manila.
“We added the Car Boot Sale to complement the Food Truck Fest, which offers a unique and safe al fresco dining experience to the public with 18 food trucks set up at the heart of Mandaluyong’s Greenfield District,” he said, adding strict health protocols are in place to ensure the safety of the public.
Santos said GDC invited celebrities and influencers, including Maxine Medina, Kim Baranda, Jome Silayan, Louise delos Reyes, Ashley Rivera, David Guison, Debbie Garcia and Kevin Ty, to sell pre-loved items, food, and other products.
“We wanted to have a shopping component that would go well with the Food Truck Fest, so we came up with the concept where vehicles will serve as merchants’ stores,” he explained. “We are exploring other themes and will be coming up with more exciting concepts next year.”
Santos also encouraged entrepreneurs, including startups, to sell their products and test the market.
He said the event also aims to raise awareness among the public on supporting local sellers and protecting the environment by using reusable bags.
“Soon, we intend to come up with more interesting and fun activities and offer a possible venue for outdoor corporate events like product launches, especially since it already has a captured market,” Santos added.
The Food Truck Fest runs daily from Monday to Thursday, from 4pm until 10 pm, and Friday to Sunday, from 4pm until 12 midnight.
Greenfield District is a cutting-edge development that redefines the future of Mandaluyong. Its green spaces and pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods are just some features worth mentioning about this innovative cityscape.
GDC’s 15-hectare urban development has become an emerging destination in Metro Manila for outdoor activities that promote holistic health. It is home to future-ready condominiums, Twin Oaks Place and Zitan, which showcase GDC’s commitment towards providing quality living spaces while promoting wellness among its residents.
With GDC’s food park, condominium residents of Greenfield District can enjoy a fun night out with their friends and family. With the Food Truck Fest situated conveniently near them, this area is accessible from major business districts around Metro Manila.
