City Councilman Inviting Street Food Vendors To Atlanta

ATLANTA — City Councilman Kwanza Hall wants more street food vendors in Atlanta. He, along with Fulton County Commissioner Joan Garner, met with potential vendors Saturday.

Councilman Hall says the neighborhoods he represents are big supporters of the street food movement. Vendors, however, have been met with opposition due to strict rules about where they can set up, and what they can serve.

The Atlanta Street Food Coalition has been working with the government to improve the relationship between vendors and regulators.

Saturday’s summit was held at the Helene S. Mills Senior Multipurpose Facility.
