What's cooking? Sandwiches, salads and snacks with a Native-American influence, using ingredients such as corn, quinoa, wild rice, bison, beans, squash, berries, nuts, seeds and chocolate.

Find it: Sundays in Dickinson Square (Tasker and Moyamensing), 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; Mondays in Love Park, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; Thursdays ?at the Mount Airy Farmers Market (Carpenter and Greene), 3 p.m.-7 p.m. The bright, summertime-colored truck is sure to catch your eye.

In the driver's seat: Sue Wasserkrug opened just two months ago after deciding that being a lawyer just wasn't for her anymore.

Most popular: The Bison Sausage Sandwich ($8), a tough but lean bison sausage lathered in a homemade cranberry relish, on a fresh egg bun from Wild Flour Bakery in Northeast Philadelphia.

Grab it while it lasts: Salads ($5) vary every day and run out quickly. Options may include a Marinated Mushroom Salad with peppers, onions and garlic, or the Squash Blossom Salad, tossed with pepitas in a lemon vinaigrette and topped with queso fresco.

Eat on the go: Choose from two empanada flavors: Sweet Potato Empanada is a combination of spuds, cream cheese, maple syrup and nutmeg that really packs a punch; the Mushroom Empanada is mixed with cream cheese and thyme. Each rings in at $3.

What's in the name? Zea mays is the scientific term for corn.
