The Rose Kennedy Greenway Expands “Greenway Mobile Eats” Program
By Memorial Day, there will be six food trucks, one trailer, three mobile kiosks, three bikes, and three carts spanning the Greenway.
This morning, the folks behind the Rose Kennedy Greenway announced an expansion in their “Greenway Mobile Eats Program,” an initiative that brought trucks and carts like Clover Food Lab and Lefty’s Silver Cart to the long strip of downtown parks last year. Building on that success, they’ve brought on seven additional vendors (making 16 total), including some familiar faces (Kick*ss Cupcakes, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese) and some newbies (Yo Taco). Some trucks and carts will be in place on May 1st, and all will be present and accounted for by Memorial Day. Here’s the full list of vendors and locations ahead:
