If you're near City Hall today around lunchtime on Oct. 19, you have another chance to sample some of the vittles from some local food truck vendors.
The food truck craze returns to Chesterfield on Friday, Oct. 19, as another group of mobile vendors converges on City Hall for a lunchtime smorgasbord. "Food Truck Friday" is different from the event that the city had sponsored through the summer at Faust Park. The "Keep on Truckin'" events had run on the fourth Thursday of each month through the summer. The last visit is scheduled for this month. On Friday, trucks from Zia's, Shell's Coastal Cuisine and two trucks from Sarah's Cake Shop — the Cake Stop and Sarah's Meltdown (which features gourmet grilled cheese) — will be at City Hall from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. "It’s primarily an employee event, but we’ve also invited our neighbors at Dierberg’s corporate building and then publicizing it a…

It's on the move at 1:30pm.
The trendy and delightful Sarah's Cake Shop in Chesterfield sends out its vendor wagon daily in the St. Louis area to supply its sweets to working Joes and Joans at the lunch hour.

Sarah's Cake Shop has a cheery, clean van filled with cupcakes and open for business.
Sarah's Cake Shop has set out to bust some myths about street vendors, just in case some cities are frightened by the notion of delicious cupcakes being sold on a regular basis from a parked van. Chesterfield is home to Sarah's Cake Shop, in Wilson Center on Clarkson Road near Kehr's Mill Road. Chesterfield has no ordinances banning street vendors with cupcakes. Some other cities—Eureka, Clayton, St. Charles, Webster Grove—seemed to have discouraged cupcake sales from the van, saying they are troubled by the lack of an ordinance controlling them. However, if revenue is the issue, Sarah's has shown it pays taxes in the towns where baked goods are sold. So here is some myth-busting by one of the partners in Sarah's Cake Shop, Jeff Pupillo. …

Sarah's Cake Shop food truck won't be stopping in Eureka, Clayton and others.
A war over cupcake turf seems to be brewing as the popular Chesterfield Sarah's Cake Shop vending truck travels from town to town, selling its custom sweets. But some suburban towns are banning street vendors like Sarah's, saying they don't know how to cope. The city of Eureka is the latest to tell the food truck they can no longer operate within city limits. “We recently observed a truck parked in town and informed the company that the city does not have a way of handling peddler activity,” said Eureka City Administrator Craig Sabo, who added that the city did not have the means to consider the food truck for a permit. Eureka has an ordinance on the books barring “peddlers,” and the only exceptions allow for farmers markets and charities…
