Dear PoPville,

Friends and I want to organize a pop up store where local vendors could sell their products (both crafts and edible products). I am having a hard time figuring out what permits would be needed from the DC government. I read their website and perused through the permit categories and I am super confused. I am thinking that I will definitely need permits because vendors will be selling packaged food and I envision them giving samples. Someone mentioned that I may not need permits if the the event is held at a restaurant or related facility that would already have a food permit. Any help to point me in the right direction would be appreciated.
