Zócalo Food Park (636 S. Sixth St.) isn’t just a place where food trucks, well, park. It is the intersection of food and community, a place that fosters the communal experience of eating. And Zócalo’s purpose continues to grow. Starting Thursday June 1 (5-8 p.m.), it will also host the Walker’s Point Farmers Market. The market will run every Thursday through Oct. 19 from 5- 8 p.m.
