TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A new pilot program will allow vendors on portions of The Loop, according to a Pima County release. 

Starting April 28, Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation began accepting online registration forms for vendors interested in the program. According to the release potential vendors will have to pay $100 per site, per month for a permit to sell on The Loop, each permit is good for 30 days.  Registration for permits will open by the 20th day of the previous month.

According to the release vendors have inquired previously about selling food or products along The Loop.  This new pilot program is a test to see if 'non-mechanized' vendors are feasible along The Loop; food trucks are prohibited from the pilot program.

Potential vendor sites are located at Flowing Wells Park, Children's Memorial Park and Brandi Fenton Memorial park, as well as at the Paseo del Rio and Riverhaven trailheads.

For more on the Vendor program and to fill out an application go online to http://webcms.pima.gov/government/the_loop/
