The food cart program has become an incestuous relationship between organic food suppliers, high end culinary collectives and faux overpriced “farmers’ markets.”
Vancouver will announce the newest 19 vendors to its street food program on April 4. They were chosen last week from a list of 52 by a panel of chefs, business people, community activists and food bloggers.
Coma Food Truck will be rolling onto streets this Friday, March 25th looking to fill the hungry stomachs of Vancouverites with a fusion of Korean, Mexican and American dishes.
Fourteen Vancouverites have signed on for perhaps one of the toughest, but definitely one of the tastiest, jobs in the city. The City of Vancouver has released the names of the food panel set to decide what street food will be served across the city.

Vancouverites will soon have even more choices when it comes to street-food options, as the City calls for applications to its expanded food cart program.
