Temporary Food Events
A Temporary Food Establishment Permit Application is needed for food establishments that operate at a fixed location in conjunction with a single event or celebration. A late fee of $25.00 will be charged if the application and payment is received less than three business days prior to the event (includes the day the payment is received, excludes day of event). Applications must be filled out completely.
A Reoccurring Temporary Food Service Permit Application is needed for food events that operate at a fixed location on the same day(s) each week for an extended period of time such as a farmers' market. These permits are specific to location and cannot be transferred to a different even or location. All applications must be received at least 3 days before the first even occurrence to avoid a late fee.
Review the Temporary Food Establishments Requirements for important information about operating requirements, food safety, and handwashing stations.
Some vendors may be exempt from permit. The list for exempt food items can be found on the Exempt From Permit Application. All applications must be received at least three days before the first event occurrence. If you have questions about this application, please contact the Health Department at (509) 524-2650.
