The city of Atlanta has launched the first ever Public Property Food Truck Program that allows food trucks to vend from designated city streets.  A pilot program will allow vendors to be located in the Government Walk area immediately surrounding City Hall throughout the summer, beginning at 11 a.m. on Monday, April 21. Trucks will be located on Trinity Avenue, Mitchell Street, Central Avenue, Pryor Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive.

“This is a win-win for foodies who love food trucks and for these entrepreneurs who chose Atlanta as a place to do business,” said Atlanta City Councilmember Yolanda Adrean, who along with Councilmember Kwanza Hall were instrumental in spearheading legislation to allow for expanding opportunities for food truck vendors on the public right-of-way.

As part of the program, vendors must park in metered parking spots and are only allowed to vend from the side of the truck facing the sidewalk.

Fifteen food trucks will be in the Government Walk area on Monday, cooking up a variety of dishes from pizzas and tacos to culinary favorites from around the world.
