on Ann Arbor City Streets and Sidewalks
City of Ann Arbor has imposed a peddler permit moratorium until April 1. The city has also imposed a 3 day prior issuance rule which means vendors have only April 1 and April 2 to apply for a city permit. City requires personal appearance, insurance, and photo ID to apply. Again, the Ann Arbor City Administrator has taken it upon himself, exceeding his legal authority, to ban all peddling around the University of Michigan Diag. If you have been damaged or will be damaged by the City Administrator's action, call us at 734-677-0009 to become a litigant.

at North University Ave
Call Rich at 734-677-0009, 734-645-6060. Political group tables only. Setup between 10-11 am. No commercial vending (yet. Ann Arbor City Code Chap 79, 7:72. Exempt persons. Persons ... of any political group seeking funds or membership shall be exempt from the licensing requirements of this chapter.) No additional City permits required! Organizers' insurance does not protect tablers. Tablers assume responsibility for own liability protection.

at Free 2003 on Monroe St
Commercial (non-political) vending included. No additional City permits required! Organizers' insurance does not protect vendors. Vendors responsible for own liability insurance.

on Diag
The University of Michigan has steadfastly refused to allow any sales or solicitations, even 1st Amendment protected activity, on or near the Diag, except for University recognized organizations. Call us at 734-677-0009 if you've been busted there.
