Pie Pushers serves pizza at the Food Truck Rodeo at Durham Central Park on Sunday, March 11, 2012.

Here are two upcoming food truck events you will want to check out

Trucks from the Market

Food truck fans always run into the same problem. We all want to sample food from every truck during a rodeo. Long lines really make it virtually impossible to do and we aren't made of money. But each year, Durham Central Park organizes an event that allows you to sample cuisine from participating trucks in a mini-rodeo setting. Trucks from the Market will feature Only Burger, Chirba Chirba, Pie Pushers, Porchetta and others. This ticketed-only event is Sunday 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. There are only 125 tickets ($50 each) available. Organizers encourage folks to share tickets. One ticket is estimated to feed up to three people. Also on hand for Sunday's event, Fullsteam Brewery will be offering two beers per ticket and a cash bar.

Pho Nomenal Dumpling-Bittersweet Dinner

This Sunday, the Food Network's Great Food Truck Race season six winner Pho Nomenal Dumpling will be collaborating with Bittersweet for a five-course dinner. Playing to each of theur strengths, Bittersweet will pair Pho Nomenal Dumpling’s courses with wine or cocktails. Also, dessert will be part of the menu. There are two seating times at 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.
