Street Vending & Sidewalk Cafés

The City of Madison has a robust and well established street vending culture. There is an array of opportunities for street vending in Madison. To learn more about opportunities, please follow through the vending process based on what type of vending category you would like to pursue.

If you want to find out where your favorite food cart is this year, or you want to do some shopping of local arts & crafts vendors, check out the site map of vendors.

Madison embraces our vendors. They are an important element to the Madison cultural scene. With over 60 food vendors, over 60 arts & crafts vendors, and over 80 sidewalk cafes, there is something for everyone.
 

It is time to apply to participate in the 2018 Food Cart Review. 

This annual process will determine if a vendor will be eligible to apply for a Mall Food Vending License for the 2019-2020 Vending season. If you do not take part in the review, you will NOT be eligible for a vending location in the Mall/Concourse.  The Mall/Concourse includes the Capitol Square and State St Mall (aka Library Mall).
