5 Best Field Trip Festival Foods

field trip food 1

Festival season is upon us. With all the great lineups being released, it is easy to forget one of the best parts of festivals: the food. 

Field Trip Festival has one of the best food lineups going on this summer. Here are a few of the headliners that you definitely don’t want to miss out on:

Buster’s Sea Cove

Hungry between Broken Social Scene and Feist? Why not tide yourself over with some seafood? Buster’s Sea Cove has been at the St. Lawrence market for years, and now they have Toronto’s first ever seafood food truck. 

The lineups are usually long, but the wait between sets is definitely worth it. They are famous for their Lobster rolls that come with a festival-friendly bag of Miss Vickie’s on the side. If you like tacos, their fresh Ensenada-style Fish and Shrimp tacos will change your life. All the food at Buster’s is a catch.

Caplansky’s is a College Street classic. If you haven’t been, not to fear. The Caplansky’s food truck (lovingly named Bubby Doris) is here! For meat-loving foodies, Caplansky’s is your one stop smoked meat shop.

Here you can nosh on Jewish deli staples including hand cut meats, sandwiches, sliders and donuts. If you’re a first-timer, definitely try the classic sandwich. Rye bread, stacked meat, topped with their famous mustard. And of course, a beautiful pickle. And trust me, they definitely don’t skimp on the protein. These sammies will keep you energized and dancing all night long.

Rancho Relaxo 

You might know Rancho Relaxo as the College St. Mexican restaurant and music venue. But you haven’t experienced Rancho Relaxo until you’ve tried their food truck. Just like the restaurant, the truck dishes out Mexican staples like street burritos, quesadillas, and cornflake-coated basa tacos with chipotle mayo.

Veggies don’t worry! There are tons of eats here for you like the Portobello mushroom quesadillas and the packed with goodness veggie burritos.

Curbalicious is perfect for the adventurous festival foodie, with options for everyone.

Their menu evolves every year, each time adding new innovative options. The Curbalicious food philosophy is self-described as “Modern Canadian Homestyle Cuisine” drawing inspiration from cultures all over Canada. Their menu has creative food inventions that cater to everyone like their Veggie McCurb, Butter Chicken Cauliflower Tacos, and the vegan Tofu Shawarma. Perfect for vegans and gluten free festival friends!


The Pop Stand Popsicles.

Keeping cool is key at music festivals. The best way to do it? Ice ice baby. Popsicles have come a long way from the pouring-juice into-freezer-molds days, and the Pop Stand is living proof of this.

Their frozen feasts are made from fresh ingredients from famer’s markets around the Six.

A few highlights of their menu include: Blueberry Lavender Lemonade, Green Smoothie, Grapefruit Campari and Mint, and Raspberry Hibiscus.
