Stationary and mobile food vending in parks

The Vancouver Park Board runs the annual Summer Food Truck Program from May to October. Each spring we issue a request for proposals to sell food at select parks and beaches.

Learn about the vending sites and apply with your proposal. You need a vending permit to sell food at our parks and beaches.

2019 Food Truck season

The Park Board is not issuing new permits for existing sites for the 2019 Food Truck season.  If sites become available proposals will be accepted at that time. Check back for updates.

If you are interested in a site that does not currently have a permitted vendor please contact joan.probert@vancouver.ca with your proposal.
