[ Edited ]

How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Wait for a rainstorm or thunderstorm, then wait for the vendors to open a food stall. I am in San Myshuno, Art Quarter.

Gif of vendor reset event. The rain seems to break the vendors opening their food stalls. I am in San Myshuno in the Art Quarter

Yup. I see this too but only with thunderstorms. If it's just raining it's fine for me.

I don't know if this is related or not but in Oasis Springs with one of the newly added Summer food stalls, I had four vendors attempt to open the stall before any of them were successful and there was no rain at the time. The first vendor spawned at the edge of the word and just stood there for a few hours before leaving. The second and third vendors made it to the stand but then immediately turned and left to stand by the world exit portal fo a little while before leaving. The fourth vendor (in a different colour uniform this time) walked up to the stand and manned it fine for a few hours but chose to close and leave around midday. I stopped watching it then so I don't actually know if another vendor turned up or not.

Light rain in San Myshuno.  I went to the Spice District and the Arts Quarter.  Two vendors were present outside their stalls when the lot loaded.  Both opened their stalls immediately even though there was light rain.  A third Vendor arrived a little later with an umbrella and just stood outside the stall.  Almost as if she was unable to enter with an umbrella.

Vendor was stuck in a loop of going into and out of stall and not actually opening the stall. I tried the resetim action on her and also tried to reset the stall but that did not work.

I went to manage world and located her household. I pulled the household into CAS and back out again. That seemed to reset her and all was well.

Video quality is not great but illustrates the issue. Notice it is a sunny day and not raining.
