POLL: Do You Want to See Food Trucks in Newton?
It's a popular trend that is sweeping the nation, and neighboring communities. But do food trucks belong in the Garden City?
Falafel, macaroni and cheese, crepes -- food trucks are not just for ice cream anymore.
With the food truck trend sweeping the nation (thanks in part to the popular "Great Food Truck Race" show on Food Network), we here at Patch can't help but ask: What do you think about food trucks in Newton?
In neighboring Brookline, a pilot program for food trucks was recently approved by the town's Board of Selectmen. Five trucks now set up throughout the week in spots around St. Mary's Street and Washington Square.
And while Newton does not have any official restaurants on wheels, the popular Newton restaurant Blue Ribbon BBQ recently opened up a food trailer off 2nd Avenue in Needham, just over the Newton line.
The Cold Spring Park farmers' market (July-October) also features an ice cream truck from Trombetta's Farm in Marlborough.
So, we want to know. Would you support food trucks in Newton? If so, where would you like to see them? Vote in our poll below and share your thoughts or ideas in the comments section.
