Watch the illegal vendor handle money and trash, and then go and handle food for sale

The intersection of florin rd and the entrance to the Home Depot and Walmart has become a favorite place for illegal vending.

An illegal sign waver, already the subject of a complaint by someone (not me this time) climbs back in the saddle anyway on 1/30/2009

This video, taken 3/7/09, shows why you shouldn't patronize illegal vendors. Without required running water and restroom access, there is no place to wash and sanitize hands. As you can tell, the food handler here appears to be ill.

This is shameful. These unlicensed, uninspected food vendors are allowed to sell their products to school age children with the knowledge of the local law enforcement. The first part is the vendors setting up shop as the kids get out of school and prepare to board busses. The second part is my encounter with local law enforcement who have taken the attitude that the messenger who films the story is the biggest worry

Great news

The Sac County EMD has actually relayed that there have been sweeps of named areas where illegal vendors are habitual offenders. So, I viewed the area on Watt ave. and Don julio Blvd for two saturdays in a row and no illegal vendors even though the weather was perfect. Based upon the information issued by the EMD representative, they also conducted sweeps in areas reported by another county business owner who communicates with me on this issue. The reported sweeps have included siezures of food products and equipment.
In addition, the county representative stated they swept other areas in the county, and have notice illegal vendors proliferating in the south county.

I encourage others to relay information about illegal vendors in their respective areas to the county EMD, and to place that information here so others can view the problem and solicit for more enforcement.

the Vendors at Rio Linda High School have resumed operations with the return to the normal school schedule. I would think the principal would have a higher concern for this given the current health scare.

Geez, what happened here? Here's a film clip from 3 years ago showing that Sac county actually went to bat for their legal vendors

It's hard to know who to root for in this one. From yesterday's Sac PD blotter:

09-160141, 211T, Center Pkwy / Tangerine Ave, 1257,


Victim is a MHA selling fruits on the corner. The suspects came up with one grabbing the victim in a body hold while the other went through his pockets and took cash. Suspects 2 MBA's 20's white shirts, jns. (NFD)

Excellent news!

the county of Sacramento has confirmed sweeps for illegal food vendors have occurred, and I have confirmed that several of the areas swept are now free of illegal food vendors. The county relayed to us in an email that they have siezed food and equipment from the vendors in locations that we provided, and some that we have not. This is a big event in a long effort to get this enforcement action underway, and from what I read, this will not be the last action.
