Given the nature of our food trucks and concessionaires, with their higher equipment investments, insurance requirements, and health permitting/inspections, we operate with a slightly different attendance approach than most of our other market vendors.
Approved onsite food providers are expected to attend every market event for which they sign up.
Absences must be reported to Market staff with sufficient notice to schedule a replacement truck.
Location within the event may change from week-to-week depending on theme/activity. Within any given food truck court/area, participants are expected to collaborate with their neighbors to find the best setup for the group (this often requires shuffling/repositioning your vehicle – sometimes more than once).
As a whole, there have been very few problems with this approach — most everyone has approached the process with the professionalism and mutual respect we feel is appropriate for our events. This is a fine group of entrepreneurs to be associated with!
Frequent abusers may result in dismissal regardless of point standing.
