Food cart in San Francisco

This morning at 10:30, in City Hall room 250, the city of San Francisco officially begins its debate on how best to harness the city’s street food movement and make the permitting process sane. An article by Heather Smith of Mission Local discusses the same rules Atlanta vendors will have to contend with, notably the fact that push carts and trucks “must have a three-basin sink with running water and a foot of drain board on either side,” and if they have a grill, “an air filtration system.” This, of course, makes it virtually illegal to sell/cook food out of anything smaller than a truck.

On the bright side, Food News Journal has found our site and given us the thumbs up.
