A Chowhound poster reprinted this e-mail from Red Hook vendor rep Cesar Fuentes this morning, and it's in line with what we last heard from him.
Dear friends and supporters,
We have decided to pass in this exciting update for your information before its official press release or its official announcement.
Upon our last compliance hurdle being met -that is, the vendors' food trucks and carts passing DOHMH inspection next week- our affair can finally open its season as early as the weekend of July 19th!!
While we are almost certain that most vendors will be compliant & ready to operate by July 19th, we have also set up a 'rain date' for the weekend of July 26th in case the majority of our vendors are required to further adjust their mobile food vending units to meet inspection standards.
While we will issue an official statement advising the specific start date soon, please feel free to spread word that our affair will definitely start on either date this month.
Thanks as always for your constant support & solidarity!
Red Hook Ball Fields [Chowhound]
