GOT A PERMIT? All food vendors are required to hold a temporary restaurant license or have a licensed domestic kitchen. (See our permit page to find more information on permits.)
October -April There are no fees or designated spots. Please refrain from vending in the street, keep customers on the sidewalk.
Food Cart Pods- All truck and large carts used for food vending will be given a reserved spot in one of the several food pod areas along Alberta. You can pull into your location via the side street and never need to save a spot or have to drive down Alberta Street. Hand pushed carts may roam Alberta Street.
SET UP: Last Thursday Expectations:
1. ASK FIRST. Before setting up in front of a business, please receive their permission.
2. LEAVE NO TRACE.
Last Thursday is a Leave No Trace event, which means that all participants must pack out what they pack in. In that spirit, please provide garbage receptacles for your customers. Please remember to take away everything that came with you. Trash cans and recycling is provided on Alberta Street, but these get full fast and cost FoLT $10 for every bag (too weighty for our budget!) Please clean up as you go and give your area a once over for trash before you depart. We ask that you leave your borrowed vending area the same (or better!) than you found it; leave no trace of your being there.
If trash is left expect a trash removal fee of $30.
LEAVE NO TRACE 101:
- Bring a plastic bag so you can collect refuse before it flies away
- Reduce your packaging/cardboard, including repackaging & preparing food in advance
- Before you leave scan through your area for anything that doesn’t belong there
- Use port-a-potties provided (look for signs every other intersection), rather than our neighborhood yards and encourage your customers to do likewise.
- Rather than relying on FoLT and the neighborhood to clean up after your merriment, get out your broomsticks and whisk away your dust. We thank you for making magic and a clean street!
