Vancouver Street Meat Project Takes Off


VANCOUVER — Despite a somewhat chaotic beginning, Vancouver street food vendors are carving out a niche for themselves.

The push to put more portable restos on the road came in July, when 17 vendors were given the go ahead to set up shop. Though the start-up was slower than expected, The Vancouver Sun reports most carts are up and running, even if they are still facing a few unique challenges.

A new report will be issued at the end of the month that will outline possible improvements to be made to the permit-granting system in place, as some foodies have criticized the current lottery system. In spite of some of the challenges, such as being limited to a street corner in a city with unpredictable winter weather, street-cart aficionados are hopeful the movement will continue to flourish.
