Capital Food Market (previous Belconnen Fresh Food Markets) is bringing Canberra local Grease Monkey to Belconnen with their food truck parking in the courtyard of the markets over winter.

Director Nick Tuckwell says they’re excited to be in Belconnen.

“We know there are a lot of fans in Belco, and we’ve been looking for a way to thank them for their support and serve them closer to where they live. We’re glad to be calling the Capital Food Markets home for the next few months!”

The truck will have tables and chairs set up and will pour local beers from Bentspoke and Capital Brewing – the perfect accompaniment to a burger.

Kim Ashton, centre manager of Capital Food Market, says that Grease Monkey is an exciting addition to the Market.

“Grease Monkey fits perfectly with our mission to create a precinct of freshness and local spirit for shopping, leisure, enjoyment and connection. We couldn’t be happier that the Greasy Truck will start serving their famous burgers from the courtyard.”
