One of the reasons there are not more food trucks in Boston is the limited number of legal venues at which the city allows mobile food vendors to operate. Thanks to an ordinance recently passed by the City Council, all that is about to change. Last week, the city released a list of 26 newly approved sites. For hungry Bostonians, that will mean more trucks, and more frequent appearances, by this time next year. New sites reach out to the Mattapan Square T Station, Malcolm X Park in Dorchester, English High School in Jamaica Plain, and Dudley Square in Roxbury. The list also includes the front of the Museum of Fine Arts in Fenway, between Newbury and Boylston streets on Clarendon Street in Back Bay; Boston University across from Morse Auditorium; Peter’s Park in the South End; and M Street Park in South Boston.
