Examples of large approved mobile vending carts
- Food trucks
- Registered trailers – the car must be parked separately.
Remember that the car or the vending cart must be registered in order to be used for mobile street vending.
Sales wagons are assessed case-specific. Therefore, you can not expect your sales wagon to be approved solely because it meets the measurements of being below or above the 2.5m2.
You may put your cart up here
With a permit for a large mobile vending cart of more than 2.5 m2 (width * length), you may carry out mobile street vending activities in most parts of the City of Copenhagen.
If you wish to obtain a permit for mobile street vending in city squares, with a large vending cart, you must apply for a permanent market stall.
As a street vendor, you must inform yourself in regulations and guidelines for business owners in the City of Copenhagen (in Danish) which contain information on noise, air and outdoor serving, among other things.
How to park your vending cart
You must park legally according to the Road Traffic Act and pay parking fees in parking lots, if this is required. See how in the pdf on parking with large vending cart (in Danish).
Please note that many parking lots, e.g. Flæsketorvet, are not public, but are privately owned. If you wish to put your cart up here, you must therefore also obtain permission from the landowner. Here you can check whether the road is private or public
If you wish to contact the landowner, you can look up the address at www.ois.dk
For how long can I stay in each place?
You must pack up your mobile vending cart every night and move it.
The Danish National Police does not license mobile street vending in the night.
Remember to show consideration for neighbours etc., e.g. by not staying so long in the same place that your stay may be perceived as permanent.
