Takes place 1st Saturdays (as it says on the tin) in Old Town Elk Grove June through October. Kind of a makeshift market with a good selection of vendors, food trucks and couple of musically acts with the street in that sections closed to traffic.
We are Very Serious about our road closure. Which is pretty impressive seeing as Elk Grove Blvd. isn’t exactly a low traffic street.
My first stop was at The Brickhouse because I was Starving.
My strawberry margarita and Brickhouse burger. I’m not exactly the margarita connoisseur(or pretty much any booze for that matter) but it was very tasty with a nice bite from the tequilla without it being over whelming. The burger was fantastic, nicely juicy with solid crispy vegetables. The free bread was pretty standard, but it was free and the butter had an interesting tang to it.
Classic cars lined up on a side street.
And suddenly I’m glad my niece isn’t here. I’d have a very hard time dragging her off without at least one tutu.
And now I wish I hadn’t been quiet so hungry and had wandered around to check out the food options. That sausage one looks damn good.
Apparently there is no such thing as too much pink for this magnetic board vendor.
I was very excited to see the Damsel in Defense booth. This is the first time I’ve seen a Avon-like setup for self-defense. I must admit that I’m pretty interested in several items from their brochure.
Do be careful not to get run over by the train.
I’m not really sure what’s going on here, but Napoleon is on a horse, so any argument is invalid.

Awesome-O-Meter: 3 1/2 Awesomes A bit sparse on the booths (there was plenty of room for more), but a nice variety for what was there. There was also a really good selection of food trucks, which I hope will be in attendance for the next food truck festival. The attendance was a bit sparse when I first got there but picked up quiet a bit as the evening went on. This was not surprising, however, as it was hot, Hot, HOT! (TM Ruby Rhod). Overall, a nice night out and a free event is always good.
