The Vancouver Food Cart Fest is back baby!! However this year it’s changed location, to 215 West 1st Avenue which is located south east of the Cambie Street Bridge, which opened in 1985 but was originally named the Connaught Bridge in 1912.Bet you didn’t know that! Mix in all of Vancouver’s favorite street food carts, markets, live music, kids stuff, DJs, and more cool stuff and you’ve got what Mom’s niece and nephew would say is “way more better”. The Food Cart Fest runs every Sunday from 12 to 5 PM until September 22, which is a big birthday in Mom’s family. Hey, it’s one of the cheapest things you can do in Vancouver too, only $2 admission, kids 13 and under are gratis. See you this Sunday!
If you have kids, you’ve likely discovered that 99.9% of kids love cheese. The rare kid won’t or might have a dairy allergy, but for the most part…..cheese rocks a kids world! We’ve had a lot of kids stop by Mom’s for their grilled cheese fix, be sure to stop by with your kids soon. If you can’t visit with your rug rats, we have a cheesy suggestion your kids just may like. Instead of Kraft dinner, try a great kids pasta called Annie’s Shells & White Cheddar (they have a number of other great selections too). Annie’s has been using organic ingredients since the very beginning back in 1998. As they say, “if it’s not real, it’s not Annie’s”. That’s why they support organic food practices and honest labeling. Next time you are at the grocery store, take a moment to compare what is on a Kraft Dinner ingredients label compared to an Annie’s ingredient label. Real cheese tastes better, and kids will notice the difference. Trust us, Mom’s knows cheese! Hey, we could raise a whole new generation of kids that ends up in college and university living on Annie’s instead of KD.
You might be reading this during your spring break here in Vancouver. Perhaps it just isn’t your year to get away to the sunshine and you have the kids on their two-week break from school? Here’s an idea to help pass the day and keep the kids entertained, come down to Mom’s for lunch! Kids and grilled cheese go hand in hand. Imagine how pumped up the kids will be when you tell them they can make their own custom grilled cheese. If they are anything like my niece and nephew…..they’ll probably go with, cheese. Yup, just cheese. Kids do like it simple. Let’s call them traditionalists. The kids also love our selection of Pop Shoppe pops, old school pop you can tell them. The small cups of home made chili are also a big hit! The kids will love our deserts……Sweet Little Vals or The Phat Elvis!!
