To revitalize Chinese economic activities under the influence of the pandemic, the Chinese government adjusts the policies and attitudes about street vending. Taking Nanjing as a typical example of a city of street vending, the paper expounds in-depth on the positive impact of street vending on the economy after the pandemic. Meantime, it also describes the new management policies of street vending made by the Nanjing government to develop with a good trend. In addition, the paper directly reflects Nanjing people’s views on street vending and the resulting behavior through professional data. Finally, through the analysis of the advantages of street vending, it proves that the support from street vending in the Chinese economy is non-negligible after the pandemic.
