Last summer the City of Vancouver approved over a dozen street food vendors who have been selling everything from BBQ to noodles or chocolate-dipped fruit.
Of all the applicants last year, this selection was chosen by the City and almost a year in, they would now like the public’s input on the programme.
“The City Street Vending Programme will be granting new food vending licenses with an opportunity for public opinion. Participate in our survey, and tell us your preference for street food options.” You can take the survey here although the only thing they would like to know is what kind of food you would like to see on the streets, using a multiple-choice list.
While we wait to see whose license get renewed, and at which locations, you can still track down current street food vendors with a free iPhone application.
The app shows you the location of each truck or cart, their hours of business, and how many times they have been marked as a “favourite” by other users. From what I understand, everyone is loving the lunchtime food selections and while the kinks are still being worked out of the process, hopefully they City can gather some valuable information with their survey.
