The Blissful Bite, Lawrence’s only active food truck, is getting more active. The bright yellow mobile kitchen is now serving lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the parking lot at 11th and Massachusetts streets. The truck rolled out the new lunch service last week.

Blissful Bite’s fresh, all-vegetarian offerings have health in mind and are studded with local produce (the Blissful Burrito I ordered Friday contained local free-range eggs and greens, and had I chosen potatoes instead of rice, those would have been local, too).

In addition to the burrito, regular offerings include Red Lentil Curry and a Sprouted Grain Taco (both gluten-free), the Hassome Avocado (Hass avocado half with amino acids, beet relish and sesame seeds — it actually is pretty awesome!), Haymaker’s Punch and Three Mint Water.

The county subleases the parking lot from Allen Press, and the Blissful Bite is sub-sub-leasing space there for a month, said Jason Hering, one of the members of the co-op that owns and operates the food truck. If sales are good enough and things run smoothly, the co-op hopes to extend that lease, Hering said. The Blissful Bite also can be found at the Cottin’s Hardware Farmers Market on Thursdays and the Downtown Farmers Market on Saturdays.
