Montréal’s food truck pilot project has been growing exponentially since it was established in 2013. It has become one of Montréal’s favourite ways of grabbing some good on-the-go food. Year after year, the project is being improved upon and extended to include better schedules, not to mention more trucks, tantalizing food offerings, and locations. This guide will steer you in the right direction to discover all the culinary treats coming your way starting this week! This year’s street food season runs from May 1 to October 31. The city has granted permits to 35 food trucks for 38 pre-determined locations (50 available spots) in and around six different city boroughs, which is a welcome expansion. In the past, the project had only taken place in and around the Ville-Marie district. But this year, it’s grown to include the following boroughs: Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, South-West, Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie, and Verdun. Other boroughs might be added throughout the season.
