For all you fleaks out there, the Denver Flea is back in business, with season two of the urban market kicking off its spring edition April 17-18 at RiNo warehouse the Bindery on Blake. Filled to the brim with goods and their makers, the exhibition of creative Coloradans is known for its artisan crafts and display of our town's finest small to medium manufacturers. But pouring over the showcase of products can induce a hangry appetite and the Denver Flea takes its food seriously. So, here's a sample of the food truck fare you can find parked at the Flea:

East Coast Joe's: For the landlocked, fresh-fish-deprived Denverites, try one of these hero-style sandwiches, stuffed to overflow with fresh lobster salad and topped with punchy sauce. Don't miss the nod to Colorado with the green chili variety.

Taj Palace: This mobile husband-wife team spices up the scene with its authentic Indian-Pakistani cuisine, from creamy tikka masala to vegetarian biryani.

Smokestack 70: Getting its start at the Frisco BBQ Challenge in 2010, the truck started its engine this past fall to bring classic Kansas City-style barbecue to the Mile High City.

El Carte 303: From carne asada to pico de gallo, the farm-to-table freshness spans from tacos to gyros, to the famous bacon-wrapped "big ass dawgs."

And in case you're still hungry, there's more. Don't miss: Mobile MeltzEl Toro the TotLa ChivaThe Comfortable Food Truck, Pinche Tacos, Cilantro Truck, Brazilian AcarajeBakin' BakeryLarkburger, and Peteybird Ice Cream Sandwiches.

Thirsty? Don't forget to RSVP for a free cold brew, courtesy of New Belgium. Choose between the special Fleak Out edition, their summer seasonal Skinny Dip, or a Slow Ride session IPA.
