Olive Food

You don’t have to go too far out or spend a bundle of money to feel like you’re vacationing in the Mediterranean -- just head to the Queen Creek Olive Mill this weekend for the grove’s Food Truck Olivepalooza festival.

The free event features complimentary wine tastings, Bocce ball, and live performances from the Hoodoo Casters on Saturday and the Chris Putrino Band on Sunday. But, if you’re anything like us, you’re really heading there for the food trucks, which will include The Great PhoKing, Satay Hut, the Grilled Cheese Truck, Aioli Burgers, Queso Good, and more.

The Food Truck Olivepalooza will take over Queen Creek Olive Mill from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on October 11 and 12. Admission to the mill, which is located at 25062 South Meridian Road in Queen Creek, is free so you can reserve your funds for the food trucks. For more information, call the mill at 480-888-9290 or visit

Sat., Oct. 11, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 12, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., 2014
