How late are your food trucks open till

An open air bar with food trucks and good vibes.

An open air bar serving local, domestic and international craft beers; curated cocktails, spirits, wines and the original "Nip & Sip" all in the shadow of Traverse City's only food truck lot. Where at any time between 2-8 food trucks from all over Michigan will be serving food. Monthly events, specialty tastings and private events happen here as well. Representin' the East side on the corner of Front & Wellington right across the street from The Cooks House.

The news from our governor concerning the reopening of Northern Michigan has set very heavy on our hearts. We have very much been looking forward to the day when we could reopen our space again and serve our community. We feel very conflicted and therefore we have decided to continue only offering take out orders for now. With an abundance of caution, all trucks will be open May 22nd and we have set up a fine selection of beer, wine and mixers to go. Online ordering will be available. We will keep you posted as things continue to develop. Link in bio and on our website with more details. All our love 💚 The Little Fleet Family

Online ordering is live. Cordwood BBQ available Thursday thru Sunday. We advise you to order in advance. Last weekend we had many pick up times that sold out. (Link in profile)

Here’s the deal. This is a really tough time for us and all small businesses. But we live in the most amazing town. The DDA has set up a program...donate to the fund to support local businesses and then also helps those in need and in the front line. It is super important to donate and raise as much as possible. Be a champion.

Excited to kick off Soup and Bread on Monday October 14th benefiting TART Trails Hope to see you all there!

Soup & Bread is a charity event that is put together by local business owners and community members that gives back to the non-profits in our area from October through April!

In this event you will find great local chefs and bakers coming together to prepare delicious soups and breads to help raise money and awareness for local nonprofits in our area.

Each month there is a different non-profit that is selected for the donation. The donation in October will be going to The TART Trail!

In this video we talk with 3 local female business owners that are passionate about our community and supporting it in their own special way.
