Vendors dealing their wares at this year’s Outdoor Basetball Festival will have to pay up.

City council approved a measure this week that charges food, clothing, and other goods-sellers $25 for a 12-foot by 12-foot vendor space and $50 for anything larger.

Oberlin recreation superintendent Ian Yarber said the basketball tournament will be a pilot program to determine whether to charge for spots at other annual events, including the city’s Independence Day firework show.

There are generally 15 to 23 vendors who show up the the city’s basketball festival and sell fruit, hot food, clothing, and more, he said.

Yarber told council that vendors are required to have permits from the health department to sell food.
