I'd say the same answer applies to both.  If the stalls have assigned
locations (rather than being placed at
random) and the same vendor gets the same location each time then the tag
street_vendor would apply
even though they're not on a street.  Arguably we need a better name for a
tag that covers those situations
as well as those given in the original proposal.  But I suspect that if I
proposed ephemeral_vendor or
intermittent_vendor the debate could drag on for years.  I'd suggest
open_air_vendor but it's stretching
things a bit when you consider mobile catering vans.  How about

However, both of the examples you give are the sort that usually don't have
fixed assignments for vendors
so you couldn't map them at stall level anyway.
