Food Trucks in Alexandria, Virginia (Update)

Food Trucks locations recommended

As we mentioned, at last night’s April Traffic & Parking Board Meeting, the Board took up on-street vending in certain designated areas for food trucks in Alexandria, Virginia.

Five (5) locations were proposed for on-street vending in Alexandria, Virginia. One is in the 2200 block of Eisenhower Ave in front of the AAA office. Two other locations proposed are by the Braddock and King St. metro stations and the remaining two are in the north Old Town area. The new ordinance will allow food truck vending from 7:00 am until 8:00 pm and a food truck may vend no longer than four continuous hours at one location. The locations are expected to have 4 parking spaces designated for food truck parking and that would accommodate up to three food trucks.

We hear the Board is putting forth a recommendation on only three (3) of the locations leaving the Old Town North neighborhood locations out of consideration. City Council will vote on the recommended locations in May 2016.

[…] We hear that the City’s Parks and Recreation Department has granted a ‘Special Event’ permit to the U.S. Patent & Trademark office (USPTO) in Alexandria, Virginia to allow several food trucks to vend in the Carlyle neighborhood, for nine straight Tuesdays in May and June from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The ‘Special Event’ starts tomorrow, May 3, 2016. This ‘Special Event’ permit was granted to the USPTO in lieu of the neighborhood’s vehement opposition to food trucks. […]
