CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) – A central Pennsylvania town is weighing whether to lift a longstanding ban on food carts.
Carlisle’s borough code prohibits mobile food carts and trucks, except during parades and special events. Now, business owners are split over a push to open the door to legal street vendors.
Jason Turner sells falafels from a bicycle cart. His business, called Unlawful Falafel, skirts the law by selling on private property. He says it’s often hard to find a spot.
Last year, Councilman Tim Scott says the borough turned down at least 10 different requests to sell food from a mobile unit. He says the food truck business has changed with the introduction of high tech cooking and sanitary equipment.
A round table discussion of the issue is scheduled for July 31.

Visitors to downtown Alpharetta Thursday night for the Food Truck Alley found more food and more tables than in last week’s inaugural event.
Fork in the Road promised to arrange for more trucks and they did, with seven trucks this week compared to four last week. Two dessert trucks plus a food cart serving up handmade popsicles increased the number of after dinner treats, too.
Mild temperatures and a stiff breeze made for a pleasant evening before the sun went down. Sweaters or light jackets were probably appreciated after dark as the temperature dipped to 60 degrees.
The Food Truck Alley is held every Thursday on Old Roswell Street in downtown Alpharetta, weather permitting. If severe weather threatens the event – like it did for the planned start date – the city will announce its status by 9 a.m. on the city website. And Alpharetta-Milton Patch will pas son that update, too.
