Street Vending Is Illegal

Street Vending Is Illegal 

Unless You Have A Permit

Street vending is not authorized by the Seattle HEMPFST® event.  City enforcement officers will be patrolling the sidewalks around the Seattle HEMPFST® event and will be issuing citations for illegal street vending.  It’s cheaper to get our $420 blanket permit!

Vending in public right of way requires a Street Use Permit from the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT). There are several different types of Street Use vending permits: Sidewalk or Plaza Vending, Curb Space Vending (Designated Food-Vehicle Zone or Temporary Curb Space Activity), Stadium and Event Center Vending, Mobile Food Vending, and First Amendment Vending.
