It seems like it was ages ago when the food trucks broke ground with permanent spots spread throughout the city, but even with a proliferation of fashion trucks roaming Boston's streets there is still no similar arrangement. That is, until this week, when Emily Benson drives The Fashion Truck right into Dewey Square (directly across from South Station) for the first-ever ongoing mobile retail destination.
Historically they have posted up in City Hall Plaza before the holidays and at private events, but the majority of these independently owned trucks are looking for a place to park their breaks on the regular. Benson's partnership with the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy results in a weekly slot for The Fashion Truck to set up shop—every Wednesday from noon to 5pm, starting tomorrow, April 10. As always, the goods Benson stocks will be ultra current and under $100.
