Fees keeping food vendors away 

Last Sunday there was a festival in the Excelsior District, but there was one problem.

“Unfortunately, everyone who came was pretty hungry because there weren’t any street vendors who could afford the $700 fee for providing food at the festival,” Supervisor John Avalos, who represented that neighborhood, said Tuesday.

The fee hike was part of a number of fee increases included in Mayor Gavin Newsom proposed city budget for the fiscal year that began July 1.

Avalos requested on Tuesday that the City Controller’s Office analyze the impacts of the fee increase on vendors who serve food at street fairs throughout the city.
