Where to Find Food Trucks in Montreal: 2017 Edition

Grumman 78's food truck downtown
| Grumman 78

The City of Montreal hasn't exactly taken a laissez-faire approach to allowing food trucks on its streets: trucks with permits are only allowed to park in very specific public locations. Plus, regardless of where they park (and somewhat contrary to the principal of mobile food service), to get that permit they need to be affiliated with a pre-existing brick and mortar restaurant. Private turf is another matter: trucks — with or without city permits — are allowed to operate on private property.

Nonetheless, the city has slowly been expanding the food truck project since the pilot in 2013, handing out more public permits more trucks and locations in boroughs away from downtown and extending the season. The 2017 season is now underway and runs through to fall. 26 food trucks are allowed at these locations (the full list is here) — more trucks may turn up at private locations and special events (think Osheaga, or around Place des Arts) but there's no routine schedule for those, save the first Friday of each month food truck gathering at the Olympic Stadium.

Note: some food truck locations may only operate at certain hours (e.g. weekdays only; lunchtime only) — we'll update the map when those details become available.
