PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Want to taste the goods from some of Philadelphia’s best food trucks?

Here’s your chance: The 2nd annual Vendy Awards are hitting the city on Saturday, July 28, from 3 – 7 p.m. at 39th and Market Streets.

The awards, which originated in New York City in 2005, pit 8-10 food truck finalists against each other in a cook-off. They also give hungry ticket-holding members of the public the chance to taste-test all the creations produced by the competitors.

All of the finalists were nominated by the public, and the winner will be determined by a panel of judges.

Here’s the list of Philly’s finalists:

• The Smoke Truck
• King of Falafel
• Vernalicious
• The Foo Truck
• Yumtown
• Tacos Don Memo
• Lil Dan’s Gourmet
• Delicias
• Little Baby’s Ice Cream
