Street Food Vendors Approved in Vancouver

Vancouver is expanding its city-approved downtown street food vending program, with a recently approved list of new vendors allowed to cook and sell food from carts on the street.

"The City of Vancouver announced Monday the three entrepreneurs are among those who will operate 19 new street-food vendor carts this summer, joining the first wave of street carts that started up last year. The new carts will feature an array of cuisine, from Indian to Mexican to the Vietnamese stylings of Kiss Kiss Banh Banh.

More than 100 applications were judged in all, and Mayor Gregor Robertson said during a news conference that his city "now has a selection of street food that represents [its] cultural diversity and culinary skill." The 19 carts can begin operating as of May."

The vendor locations are scattered throughout the city's dense downtown area.
