open_air_vendor and outdoor_vendor are also problematic as my intention

was to include also vendors  that operate under roofs and I expect that in 

some places there are pernament shops that are outdoors.


and something like

dismantable_vendor=yes or disappearing_vendor=yes or may_be_not_present=* 

and my other ideas were even worse.
