City Committee Considering Forcing Food Carts to Offer Vegetarian Options

Some on Madison's Vending Oversight Committee think they can figure out this supply and demand stuff better than sellers


In Madison, people dining at food carts don't have to eat their veggies, but in the future, they could get the choice.

The city's Vending Oversight Committee, as part of its annual review of food carts, on Wednesday will discuss whether carts must offer vegetarian menu items.

The suggestion came from a city food cart reviewer who is a vegetarian, street vending coordinator Warren Hansen said.

"I always tell new applicants to include at lease one vegetarian item because there's a demand for it," Hansen said. "It's just good business."
