Food and Food Trucks at Oddmall
Food. Trucks. Food trucks.
People like all three of those things, which is why Oddmall is extremely excited to offer a variety of food vending and food truck opportunities at several shows throughout the year.
Food vendors who do not need to actually cook onsite and who do not require special vehicles may purchase regular vendor booths from which to peddle their delicious, delicious wares.
Arts & Farts is what we call the areas where the food trucks hang out at our various shows.
Why is it called Arts & Farts?
Because we’re weird.

What inspections and special circumstances apply to food truck and food stall vendors at Oddmall?
All food truck and food stall vendors (with the exception of those exempted by the Farmers Market stipulation below) are required to pass an inspection and be licensed to operate within the county in which the event occurs. For more information please contact the Stark County Health Department and/or Summit County Public Health and/or the Cuyahoga County Health Department. Oddmall is not responsible for food vendors who do not pass inspection or fail to be properly licensed.
Are water and electricity provided?
Depending on the venue, water and electricity may or may not be provided (sometimes at no extra charge and sometimes included). Nevertheless, all food vendors must have the ability to be self sufficient in the case that unforeseen circumstances arise. Electricity and water are not guaranteed at any venue.
What if the weather is bad?
Unfortunately, we can’t control the weather (although we are working on it). If food trucks are unable to participate because of inclement weather refunds are not issued. Such situations are beyond our control and are a recognized cost of doing business.
What if I’m just selling premade packaged food items or fresh fruit and vegetables?
Oddmall is registered with the state of Ohio as a Farmers Market. Vendors selling cottage foods and prepackaged items do not require licenses but are still subject to inspection onsite by state or county inspectors.
