Food Vehicles - (Mobile Food Vendors / Food Truck Permits)


The purpose of this regulation is to define the process, licensing, location, and general operations for vendors engaged in the preparation and sale of food from mobile, non-permanent vehicles but at stationary locations within the City of Plainfield. It is not the purpose of this article to regulate peddlers/vendors with carts or push carts who travel from place to place making their sales and are already regulated by Section 9:7-1 et. Seq.

A maximum of twelve licenses/permits shall be available each year for the Church Street area for food vehicles operated by vendors who do not have a brick-and-mortar restaurant or store within the City of Plainfield. As Church Street is the only acceptable location for daily operations of food vehicles, with a six-food-vehicle capacity limit, permitted vehicles are allowed to operate daily on a first-come, first-served basis - not to exceed the six-food-vehicle capacity daily.
