Food Truck Season Starts in Albany
On Monday, the annual food truck vendor season began in the City of Albany. Food trucks will be staged adjacent to West Capitol Park along Washington Avenue and State Street east of the Swan Street intersections, and new this year, along New Scotland Avenue between the Albany Medical Center Physicians Pavilion Parking Lot and South Lake Avenue.
Potential additional sites remain under consideration and if confirmed, will be announced at a later date.
In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, food trucks will be separated from one-another by at least ten feet. Food truck operators are required to ensure all patrons are able to maintain 6 feet between other patrons and comply with all other social distancing requirements as per the CDC, New York State Department of Health, and Albany County Health Department.
Vehicle operators should be aware that signed “vendor-only” parking restrictions in those areas will be reinstated as of Monday, April 20, at 8:00 a.m. Vehicle operators should refrain from parking in those spots Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
