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.

We’re keeping tabs on the three locations on a daily basis as well as off-street. Off-street vending is still allowed in Alexandria, Virginia.

Today, (Wednesday, September 7), Red Hook Lobster Pound is serving off-street in the West End of Alexandria, Virginia at the Hilton Mark Center at 5:00 PM.
