The Vending and Vendor Market Programme was created to facilitate micro-enterprise in Bermuda and to provide an pathway for budding entrepreneurs and small roadside vendors to test their products and organically grow their business before being committed to a storefront location. BEDC has an active programme to not only create vendor markets when opportunities arise, but to work with stakeholders to assist them in creating vendor markets as vibrant places to regenerate their communities. BEDC can assist with expertise, infrastructure, marketing and resources support to registered vendors who want to work together to create vendor markets. Whether individually or collectively, a vending license is required to vend in public places and is only required for the sale of retail goods (not services). Bermuda-made or locally-grown goods are not required to have a vending license.
