Food Trucks: We Want You! Apply now for new downtown vending location

We have an exciting new food vending location coming soon to downtown! In partnership with the Downtown Seattle Association (DSA), we’re creating a new Pavement to Parks installation in the 300 block of Pine Street. The newly created park includes two spaces for left-side-serving curb-space vendors and we’re inviting any eligible food trucks to apply now, with vending starting as early as November 20, 2017, just in time for the holiday season. Vending will be allowed at this location from 10 AM to 2 PM, 7 days a week.

 

To be eligible, vendors must:

  • Use a food truck that allows for vending out of the left-hand side of the truck. No truck-and-trailer combos or food carts will be allowed to operate at this location.
  • Have all required documentation in place prior to applying. This includes having a City of Seattle business license, King County Public Health permits, and proof of insurance.
  • Submit a $209 review fee. Other curb-space-vending-specific review fees will also apply.

    The new Pine St. vending location

Good news: you don’t need to provide a site plan to vend in the new park, and the DSA has already established a universal restroom agreement under which all vendors at this location may operate.

In addition to the street painting and other aesthetic park features, the DSA is providing tables and chairs as part of the installation.

If you’re interested in applying, visit our new vending permits page to download an application. If you have any questions about this site, or vending in general, please contact us at publicspace@seattle.gov.

An official public launch party/park opening event date will be announced soon so stay tuned!
