Latest additions to Chicago’s street vending history – Chicago Tribune

Good morning Chicago.

On a cold late winter evening, the smell of cooking meat wafted through the traffic outside the Salt Shed music venue.

The smell wafted from folding tables and stools set up across the street, where scores of vendors sold arepas, empanadas and pastelitos from colorful coolers. Benches and a shopping cart were filled with snacks and cans of Sprite and Fanta.

This is where Edwin Bravo sells tequila outside the immigrant shelter where he was staying. He said Venezuelans who were more established in the city brought him pre-cooked food and received a share of the money in return. He said the food at the shelter was terrible and thought many residents would take him on the $5 for 2 special.

Set up at the corner of Bravo and West Town, the others are a breed of street vendors who are becoming an increasingly familiar sight as newcomers to the area seek employment opportunities. They are part of the underground economy that has gained visibility as more than 36,000 people have arrived in Chicago across the southern border since August 2022.

The new arrivals are the latest additions to Chicago’s street vending history.
