Food Trucks Spotted Vending in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia for the first time
This is an update to this post. On May 10, the Alexandria City Council voted to allow food truck vendors to operate in three designated, on-street locations on public property in addition to previously approved off-street locations.
On-street food truck vending was approved in the following areas:
- 800 block of N. West Street, north of Madison Street, near the Braddock Road Metro;
- the 1700 block of King Street adjacent to King Street Gardens; and
- The 2200 block of Eisenhower Avenue, near Mill Road.
To operate a food truck in the City of Alexandria, food truck vendors are required to obtain a Health Department Permit, inspections from both the Health Department and Fire Department, a City of Alexandria Business License, and a Mobile Food Truck Permit.
