Food truck sites
There are 21 public sites for food trucks in the City of Boston. Learn about different zones and hours of operation.
Private and special sites
To work on a private site, you need to give us several documents for approval. We'll need:
- your food truck permit application
- the lease or letter of agreement from the property owner
- a photo of the site and a drawing that shows where your truck will be located and how you plan to serve food, and
- a copy of your Use of Premises permit approved by Inspectional Services. If the department denies your permit, you can appeal it for $150.
To get approved for a private site, you need to bring all your documents to the Public Works Permitting Office:
1 City Hall Square, Room 714
Boston, MA 02201
Office hours: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
