Durham food truck rodeo County Fare announces opening date

County Fare will open April 18 in Durham as a nightly hub for area food trucks, plus beer.Drew Jackson

It’s food truck time in Lakewood.

Durham’s County Fare will open Wednesday, April 18, becoming the area’s first dining destination devoted solely to food trucks. Constructed in the Shoppes at Lakewood parking lot, County Fare will host a roster of local food trucks nightly and run a bar offering drinks and seating to diners.

Owner Steve Frasher said a schedule of food trucks will be posted on their website next week.

The concept is this: Imagine a saloon with a handful of food trucks hitching themselves to the post each day. Each night, it’ll be a landing pad for a few local food trucks, offering some of the amenities the mobile kitchens sometimes do without. Instead of sidewalk seating (or strolling), there will be tables inside and out with seating for up to 200.
