I feel like I've seen the reason somewhere before, but ... what is the function of "tane" in this sentence?

It can always be used in places where you can count things with your finger, but can almost always be used. it is used a lot less with people, but it isn't wrong to use it

Is it improper NOT to use it? "Bu mahallede otuz satıcı var."

Exactly. It is totally fine to exclude it. The only time that it is actually required is when you are saying "I want X peices" where it would be the word for "pieces"

Why not 'satıcılar?' 'Vendors' is plural.

The plural suffix is never used after numbers :)
