friiskiwi: are stalls and markets allowed? ( 5 years and 2353 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Markets are not allowed, stalls are as long they are permanently based on the same location.
This means: someone selling food on the side of the street using a temporary (and/or move-able) set up is off theme, someone selling food from a permanent building type structure is on theme ( 5 years and 2352 days ago )
rbsgrl: Is this limited to shops and restaurants or any locally owned business that meets the mods comment just above this one? ( 5 years and 2352 days ago )
MnMCarta: LOL I thought you meant "stall" as in an outhouse. ( 5 years and 2352 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @rbsgrl: in the description it is mentioned "any type of store is allowed" ( 5 years and 2351 days ago )
