A Vendor is any person who offers goods or services for sale on the streets or from a vehicle or a stand open to the street, whose business is conducted from a vehicle, cart, stand or temporary structure. A valid vending license must be obtained from the city clerk in order for any person to engage in business as a Vendor within the City. A separate license is required for each Vendor stand, motorized vending unit or portable vending cart.
A Canvasser is any person traveling by foot, wagon, motor vehicle or other conveyance, from place to place, house to house, business to business, or street to street, on behalf of a religious, political, educational or non-profit charitable organization selling goods or services for that organization for its fund-raising, seeking donations, distributing information or seeking signatures on petitions. A Canvasser is not considered a Vendor for permitting purposes; however, a canvasser is required to register with the St. Joseph City Clerk's Office.
Types of Vendors
Day Vendor - Operator of a portable vending cart or motorized vending unit, selling goods from a single approved site. The portable vending cart or motorized vending unit must be removed every evening after vending hours have ended.

Special Event Vendor - Operator of a stationary stand or portable vending cart licensed for a limited, specific period in association with a special event. The stationary stand or portable vending cart may be left on site for the duration of the event, and may be located on private property.
