Downtown Vending Program
The City of Cincinnati’s Downtown Vending Program (DVP) enables merchandise vendors to sell from the public right-of-way in the downtown area. This program was created to encourage and support local entrepreneurs to be a part of the thriving Downtown Cincinnati business community. The Downtown Vending Lottery is held annually on the third Thursday of March at 9:30 AM at Two Centennial Plaza, 805 Central Avenue.
Apply for food vending licenses through the City of Cincinnati Health Department.
