Unique food vehicle project

Unique Food Vehicle 

The City of Fremantle aims to utilise public open space and support the international mobile food truck trend while allowing vendors the opportunity to provide an alternative offering to regular take-away food and new interesting food experiences.

To align with the City of Fremantle’s objective a unique food vehicle should:

  • engage the community
  • provide, healthy, good quality and culturally unique food
  • provide affordable food
  • provide only safe food

Mayor Brad Pettitt was quoted in STM’s article on food trucks as saying; “The City is supportive of this initiative, which it expects will be a big hit with locals and tourists and will add to the culture and diversity of Fremantle."
