The list of food trucks that will be allowed for the first time at the Taste was announced on Wednesday.

A total of 13 food trucks will participate but only up to seven trucks will be selling food each day of the Taste, which runs from July 10-14 at Grant Park.

There were 16 food trucks that applied to be part of the Taste. The three that did not get picked were either not licensed or not in good standing, said Cindy Gatziolis, spokeswoman for the city's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.

The trucks will be parked along the eastern-most concrete path near the lawn of the Petrillo Music Shell. They will begin selling food one hour before the evening concerts, which will be 4:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. They can start at 3 p.m. Sunday.

When the city in April announced the addition of food trucks at the Taste, it said the trucks will accept the same food and beverage tickets as other booths at the Taste and will offer up to four regular-size items as well as two smaller "Taste" portions.

Here's a list of the food trucks at the Taste:
