Starting today (March 1), applications are being accepted for food truck and mobile vending cart operators to set up shop at City of St. Catharines parks and facilities for the season.
Launched last year, the policy was developed in response to resident and business requests and allows businesses to apply for a dedicated space each year.
Vendors can request a specific location by suggesting it on their application form based on the criteria outlined in the policy. Parking availability and proximity to other food services will also be considered. The application process will give preference to accessible, environmentally friendly, and Niagara-based organizations.
Successful applicants will need to obtain their Hawkers and Peddlers Licence, a food truck and mobile vending cart park permit, and they will need to pay an environmental fee.
Interested businesses can fill out an application anytime between March 1 and 31 at stcatharines.ca/VendorPermit.
The operating season is expected to run from June 1 until Sept. 30.
