Summer season is just around the bend, and Seattle Parks and Recreation made their annual open-call announcement for street food vendor applications. While Cal Anderson seems like a coveted spot for any street vendor, only one person applied for it this year.
That person was Vladislav Broyzer. He’ll have a New York style hot dog cart in the center of the southern walkway near the ball field as Belka and/or Hot Dogs in Seattle, according to Dewey Potter, spokesperson for Seattle Parks and Recreation.
Broyzer will sell the typical fare: Sabrett, tofu and boca dogs, with knishes, chips and condiments. Also, he’ll sell canned soda, V8 and Arizona beverages and Rockstar ice cream bars.
He’ll be able to start selling as soon as he gets all of his permits from Public Health.
Broyzer faces some mean competition from other street vendors in the area including the much-loved stand at the Comet and brick and mortar purveyor of hot wieners, Po Dog (CHS sponsor).
CHS will catch up with Broyzer once he sets up shop, but let’s hope that the drama affecting last year’s vendor Wandering Wieners will not keep us from sampling snacks in the park this summer.
