Mobile food vending permits

Our mobile food vending program offers permits to mobile food businesses to operate in six designated areas to add to the vibrancy and vitality of outdoor places and experiences.

To be eligible to apply for a mobile food vending permit:

  • Sell food and non-alcoholic beverages.
  • Be able to trade solely from the mobile food vending vehicle without the requirements of additional infrastructure being placed into the public space.
  • All advertising is affixed to the mobile food vending vehicle and not encroach into the public space.
  • The mobile food vending vehicle is in good repair.

The location map below identifies the six designated sites. Click on each dot on the map to see further information about trading on that site.
