"On the Fly" Eco-Vending: A New Breed of Street Vendors

Though launched last November which, after some reflecting I now recall hearing news of at the time, the first time that I'd ever come across an On The Fly Smartkart was yesterday afternoon when enroute to the 10th Street Art Walk that I headed north on 7th Street, from D Street, and turned left onto F Street in the Penn Quarter area of NW WDC.

Founded by three crazy kats that saw a void that needed to be filled ... who then teamed up with three other doods ... the odd little green vehicle with wings debuted in Chinatown near 8th and H, NW selling empanadas and other Mexican fare.

A second Smartkart would fly in, at the 7th and F Street location in January 2008. Here's a list of other locations which includes the National Arboretum and National Ballpark and the soon to open Artomatic 2008.

Here is a list of their vending partners. If you have a product that you would like to see On The Fly® carry or, perhaps, always wanted to quit your day job and start a hummus company but need some help ... drop the crazy kats / doods a line.

And here is other pertinent contact info.
