Alexandria Food Carts are Open on Market Square!

Alexandria Food Carts are Open on Market Square!

The bright yellow umbrellas and food carts are out on Market Square in Old Town Alexandria. These food carts are the City of Alexandria's pilot program that is limited to existing restaurants in Old Town and so far, the project has been a great success.

"It brings activity to the City square in the summer," said Barbara Ross, the Deputy Director for the Department of Planning and Zoning for the City of Alexandria.

Ross explained how the city wanted to start small, but this is a first step in a much larger project. 

"It's pretty, it's exciting, and it's delicious!" exclaimed Ross, who works in City Hall and got herself a crepe for lunch today. Check out the video to find out what other delicious eats you can get from the carts.

Vendor carts will be on Market Square from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekdays and Sundays, and from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
