Remember that you're the one who is supposed to be a Christian.
Do I need a license or permit? How do I get one?
Yes, you need a license. Unless what you are selling is protected by the First Amendment (see below), selling in public space without a license is a crime
If you want to sell food, it is somewhat easier but still difficult. Food vendors need a license for themselves, on which there is no limit. They also need to sell from a pushcart with a Department of Health permit, which are limited at about 3,000 city-wide. The Department of Health holds lotteries every few years to distribute any excess permits, but the average wait is still more than a decade
