The PiPress takes at two trends in mobile vending. First, Kathy Jenkins gives us a breakdown on the make-shift food truck food court that is now popping up at lunch time in St. Paul. The trucks, including the Chef Shack, Magic Bus Cafe, 128 Mobile and more, set up shop on Kellogg Boulevard near Wabasha Street for downtowners to walk over and get some grub.

And while food trucks on a part-time schedule are delivering food options to busy parts of St. Paul, some temporary stores — or “occasional shops” — are also popping up around the metro.
