Vending Downtown

Vending Trucks & Carts

City Council has passed two ordinances that regulate vending trucks and carts in the downtown area. These resources are to help vendors, businesses, residents, and visitors understand these ordinances and how to easily register your truck or cart for business in the downtown area.

Vendors are divided into two categories: Vending Trucks and Vending Carts. Both are required to operate with a City of Morgantown Business License, even if their headquarters are outside City Limits.

Private Property

A permit is not needed if you are selling on private property with the permission of the landowner.
