The Prospect Park Alliance, the nonprofit organization that manages Prospect Park, is looking to bring more healthy, original and affordable food options to Brooklyn's green oasis, and encourages local food vendors and food cart operators to submit their proposals.
"With more than 10 million visits annually, Prospect Park is Brooklyn's backyard, and Prospect Park Alliance serves the diverse communities that call Brooklyn home, as well as visitors to the city," the organization stated. "We are seeking vendors that have the experience and skills necessary to operate quality food services at reasonable prices and enhance the experience of park users."
The Alliance hopes to enhance the park's current food and drink offerings, which include King David Tacos and concessions at the LeFrak Center for Lakeside, and, in season, the Prospect Park Carousel and Parade Ground.
Possible locations for the mobile food carts include 9th Street and Prospect Park West, Flatbush Avenue and Plaza Street, Dog Beach, the Long Meadow Ball Fields at 10th Avenue and the Vanderbilt Playground Loop in Prospect Park.
Interested businesses owners can attend a pre-proposal meeting at the Prospect Park Picnic House on Monday, February 4, at 12:00pm. Those planning to respond to the request for proposal should attend the meeting, the Alliance emphasized. The deadline to submit proposals is Monday, March 4, 2019.
