The Greenway Conservancy (rosekennedygreenway.org) announced the new line-up of 38 food trucks and carts, including 7 new vendors for the 2018 season of Greenway Mobile Eats . Beginning Monday, April 2, Mobile Eats vendors will be pulling in to their new spots for the year, with the largest numbers of food trucks in the eight years of the program. Trucks offer a variety of fresh, affordable cuisine at 7 different vending locations along The Greenway, 7 days a week.
The Greenway hosted Boston’s first gourmet food truck in 2010. The 2018 season will see up to 25 trucks and carts a day during the height of the season; specifics and a daily schedule can be found at www.rosekennedygreenway.org/food with updates via @HelloGreenway on Twitter.
From Indian delicacies and Korean fusion to fresh seafood and specialty pizza – our trucks never disappoint the neighborhood’s lunchtime crowd.
To learn more about the variety of food trucks on The Greenway, join us on Saturday, May 5, from 11am to 3pm for the Greenway Spring Food Truck Festival ! This annual, family-friendly event is a great opportunity to meet many new and returning vendors. Visitors, especially for those who aren’t regularly downtown, can sample “Greenway Cuisine”. This coincides with the opening day of the Greenway Open Market, a popular open-air artisan market featuring talented area artists, crafters, and independent designers. (The food truck line-up will feature 10-15 trucks to be announced; rain date is Sunday, May 6).
“Welcoming new and returning food trucks to The Greenway has become a spring tradition, and we invite visitors to join us in trying unique, fresh, affordable cuisine from some of Boston’s most innovative food entrepreneurs.” said Samantha McGinnis, Director of Programs and Earned Income for the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, the non-profit responsible for all maintenance and programming of the signature park.
Over 600,000 hungry patrons were served on The Greenway over the course of 2017. Location fees from the Mobile Eats Program help support the park’s 400+ free programs, the park ranger program, and more.
