Rec and Park to License More Street Food Carts

In Mission Dolores on July 15, 2009 at 12:32 pm

As the City is about to approve a harsh lean times budget and the Park Rangers have discovered the joys of harassing Dolores Park, this bit of news is reported by the Examiner’s Will Reisman.  In admittedly a revenue generating move, Rec and Park is planning on asking the Parks Commission for the OK to license more food carts, at a one grand a month fee.  There are already some carts and concessions in Golden Gate Park and the Civic Center. Local fav, Crème Brûlée Guy, is liberally quoted.

The Crème Brûlée Guy, a local food vendor who operates outside city regulations and declined to give his name, said it’s admirable that the department is trying to encourage more street vending, but the $1,000 monthly cost is “pretty steep.”

“It would be hard for an independent vendor to make that monthly payment,” said the Crème Brûlée Guy, who has operated in Dolores Park in the Mission district, adding that he intends to investigate purchasing a permit.
