Telegraph Avenue Stalls - Permit needed?

by interval


Just wondering how one would go about setting up a stall to sell stuff on Telegraph Avenue...

Are there limited spaces? Do you need to obtain some kind of permit? if so where from?

Thanks :)

Re: Telegraph Avenue Stalls - Permit needed?

by NorCal08

In order to set up a booth on Telegraph Avenue you must do/meet the following requirements: 1. Goods must be handmade by yourself; Obtain a "Sellers Permit; " Call the Finance/Enforcement Officer and schedule a meeting where you must do the following: Bring receipts from past 6-mos showing raw materials purchases for the thinga-ma-jig you wish to sell, bring samples of actual raw materials you have purchased to produce thinga-ma-jigs, and finally, bring finished thinga-ma-jig for all to see, touch and feel, and possibly purchase if you a true salesperson.

There is a Street Vendor Ordinance which, with a little luck and ample time, you can find on the Berkeley website at You could also try the Telegraph Avenue Association or whate ever they call themselves these days. Good luck.

excellent. thanks for the quick and informative reply.

i forgot to ask whether this permit is free or would i have to pay for it?

Berkeley may be the capital of the "Free" Speech Movement, but when it comes to permits, that's where the concept of free and the City shift directions. There will need to be an exchange of money, but can't tell you how much.

Obviously, the world's greatest Communism place is the "Peoples' Republic of Berkeley".

Too Expensive to live in (for a college town)

by supune

The people there are real cool. Lot's of different types of people and almost all have learned to be outgoingly tolerant. But the cost of housing is too much. Most of the places you can rent are old and dirty and not worth the price (especially since they stopped rent control a few years back). For all the trouble finding parking and all the petty crimes that happen it is just not worth it. The place I rented about a mile and half from campus was $400/month (a studio apt with a kitchen and bathroom). An year after I moved out, after rent control stopped, I found the same place was going for $850/month.

Tightwad Hill

by Karnubawax

Tightwad Hill overlooks the Memorial Stadium behind the UC campus, and is one of Berkeley's most famous landmarks. Poor students and other cheapskates have been crowding onto this hill to watch Cal football games for free for over 80 years (it is tradition that Cal students must watch at least one game from Tightwad Hill during their matriculation). Getting here is easy enough - just go to the left of the main gate and walk up the dusty hill. You'll be sharing the view with others (MANY others if it's a big game), but the price sure is right, and the views of the Bay Area are incredible.

One annoyance is, of course, the cannon. It blasts off after every Cal score and at the end of the game when (not if, but when) they win. The cannon is also located on Tightwad Hill, about 20 feet from where you'll be sitting. The cannon itself has a rich history; it was given to the University by the Class of 1964 as their Senior gift, and was first fired at the 1963 Big Game. In 1972, the PAC-8 banned all cannons from University stadiums, so the stubborn Cal students just moved it to the hill right above it!

Berkeley's most famous rock band - Green Day - even has a song called "Tightwad Hill" on one of their albums!

The Civic Arts Program...

The Civic Arts Program administers and develops projects which accomplish the mission of the Civic Arts Commission, which advises the City Council on all matters affecting the beauty and culture of the city.

Spend a few hours in Berkeley...

by ucbwalker

Spend a few hours in Berkeley and nothing will shock you anymore. Wandering along Telegraph Avenue, between Bancroft (where it borders the campus) and Dwight, you'll see middle-aged women walking around topless, bums asking for change so they can 'snag a bomb sack of weed', the rudest bumper stickers on sale from rabid populist street vendors, etc. etc. If there is one place in America where the Establishment is not welcome, it is here.

Many complain that Berkeley - and Telegraph Avenue in particular - is stuck in the sixties and needs to move on. But I admire the city and its people for hanging on to ideals of social justice and egalitarianism, and for rejecting the call of yuppiedom. Come to Berkeley with peace in your heart and you'll feel right at home.
