NEW YORK -- Pushcarts may come to shove on the streets of midtown Manhattan in a food fight that pits Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani against the ubiquitous open-air vendors of franks and sausages, pretzels and ice cream, gyros and sodas and coffee.Mr. Giuliani wants to move most pushcarts out of the midtown area, where for years they have dotted street corners with their bright umbrellas and aromatic, inexpensive fare.The mayor's office claims that it is simply enforcing long-ignored 1983 regulations and that the law is the law.The vendors, mostly immigrants who are licensed and pay taxes, say this is their livelihood; they have families to support.

What's a monument lighting without fish tacos or Polish sausage? On Thursday night, crowds arriving early for the annual lighting of Baltimore's Washington Monument will have plenty of food vendors to keep them company while they wait for things to get rolling. The dramatic monument lighting itself happens at approximately 7:45 p.m., and stage entertainment, which includes choirs and dancing Santas, begins at 6 p.m. But the festivities begin even earlier, at 5 p.m., with food and craft vendors assembling for a holiday village in Mount Vernon Place's west square, the main gathering space for the event.

Does Baltimore's annual Artscape festival truly seem too much like Foodscape? That has been a criticism in the past because food vendors have occupied so much prime space along a key corridor of the festival. But it's not likely to apply this year, if organizers move ahead with plans they're considering to move anything that's "broiled, baked, grilled or fried" to a new area within the festival grounds. Relocating the food vendors is one of several changes under study by Bill Gilmore, the new director of the city agency in charge of the annual event, which is held in the Mount Royal cultural district near Bolton Hill.

A clash between organizers of separate seasonal festivals was resolved last night by bringing four individual events under the supervision of one central committee.Twelve Mount Airy residents met to begin restoring the community's popular Fall Festival, and to bring three other annual town events -- Spring Fling, Flag Day and Christmas in Old Town -- under a single committee's aegis.Planning for the Fall Festival, a two-day October event that draws large crowds to the community of 5,000 in southwest Carroll County, was interrupted early this month when the eight-member sponsoring committee resigned and returned deposits that vendors had placed to reserve booths.

The Annapolis city council approved last night a $1 lease of City Dock space to the local organizers of the Volvo Ocean Race after amending the agreement to prohibit race vendors from selling food or alcohol. In a surprise move, the race's strongest proponent, Alderman Michael W. Fox, who also serves as vice president of the nonprofit group that is organizing the local stop and leasing the space, introduced the amendment that prohibited food vendors. The amendment, which eliminated the sale of beer, wine and liquor and reduced the term of the lease from nine days to six, was approved without debate.

For more than two years, Baltimore city has tried to fight its litter problem with a law barring merchants from giving shoppers plastic bags unless they ask for them. But even the law's supporters acknowledge it's had little impact. Of more than 200 food vendors inspected by the Health Department, at least three-fourths have not posted the required signs informing customers of the no-bag-unless-you-ask policy, according to the city's Office of Sustainability. Yet only one store - the Safeway supermarket in Canton - has been fined for not complying with the law. And nearly four out of five businesses, including grocery stores, takeout restaurants and convenience stores, keep giving out plastic sacks despite hopes that the law would encourage more to offer only paper bags.

I also have to agree with a letter from Ed of Baltimore ( "Where's the art at Artscape" July 20). My wife and I have gone to the Artscape at least three other times and found it enjoyable. This time we were very disappointed with what we saw. We saw very little art and a lot of commercial setups. Why would I want to spend my time walking around and see everyday companies at this event? There was very little art, a lot of food vendors, and women's clothing, jewelry and other companies promoting their goods.
