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.

A reader tipped us off to the Loopy Eatery’s truck which was vending at lunch today in the Upper King Street neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia at the designated King Street Gardens location.

For our morning links, while you slept, showered, shaved, and got your Starbucks, we scanned the local papers, blogs, and websites to find the most interesting stories in them you might have missed.

Alexandria’s only weekday farmers’ market!
Open Rain or Shine!

NOTE: There are only four more Wednesdays to enjoy Alexandria’s best farmer’s market- the market closes at the end of October.

Among the many products – they have two wonderful local veg & fruit vendors – Shlagel Farms and Pleitez Produce; Jean Luc a fabulous french breads and croissants; Bon Vivant sells grass fed meats, cheese and local honey, Enid’s fresh lemonade and sweets will switch to spiced cider, new to the market is Bread & Chocolate bakery – selling empanadas and assorted baked goods, they are adding some other interesting vendors to fill out the park and help people with early holiday shopping.

The market is held, rain or shine, each Wednesday from 3-7 pm through October 26, 2011. The location is 1806 King Street at the King Street Gardens Park (a short walk east of the King St. Metro station.)

Each year the Association selects 10-12 vendors for this market. The focus is on local producer/growers who sell their own products – so you can meet the farmer, the baker, or the producer. As a small market (it’s a very small park) they emphasize quality and diversity.
