Forum Post: Food vendors near Zuccotti Park

Has the group in Zuccotti Park established good relations with the food vendors on Cedar St.? Please be considerate of them and remember they have recently had to close for the almost-hurricane and the 9/11 anniversary.

The space you are occupying is normally used by their customers, and I worry that they are losing business because of this protest.

lampfall that would be wonderful if you could buy from the Cedar St vendors. Sam's falafel is so good and the people there are so nice. The platter is big enough for two people to split.

Anything you can do for local small businesses would be great.

T shirts -- what a super idea.

This is a great point to make, as is the possible damage being done to the other vendors on wall st. These are REAL working class people, often immigrants whose rights are often trampled on more than any one else in the city.

We should a) make contact with them, and w/ the food vendors, try to throw some business their way. Perhaps eat from them, and not PIZZA every night.

b) we should think about making some anti-corporate t-shirts, hats, etc. and working with the other vendors to sell these. We could use the profits to support the movement and flip capitalism on itself.
