Washington, DC: DC Street Food Scene Explodes with Almost 200 Food Trucks

By Mark J. Perry | AEI-Ideas.org


The food trucks (about 20) and people were lined up today at Farragut Square in DC during the lunch hour, enjoying the great food and the 57 degree weather with lots of sunshine (see photo above). I checked out the Pinup Panini food truck for the first time (excellent!), which is one of 171 food trucks in the DC area now listed at the Food Truck Fiesta website, with 11 more food trucks listed as “coming soon.” The DC food trucks are booming and increasing like shale oil in North Dakota and Texas, and will soon number more than 200!
