On the weekend of April 24th – 25th the famous Oxford Square will be filled with something to tickle the fancies of everyone from music and art lovers, to those just out to see the sights and have a good time. But Double Decker weekend is also a prime time for food lovers wanting to try items from some of the best local eateries.
With over 15 food vendors available and a wide array of menu items, there is something for everyone. Local Foods Organic Cafe and Market will be serving brisket tacos made with local brisket, as well as potato and black bean tacos.
