A vendor is defined as a facility that is operating as part of an interim market. These facilities are not permanent structures and are assembled and disassembled routinely at one location.
Licensing and inspections is not required for vendors that sell only whole uncut produce (raw agricultural products) or pre-packaged Non-Time/Temperature Control for Safety Food (TCS) (non-perishable food products). If that describes your business, you do not have to fill out any paperwork and need not proceed any further.
Note: Providing a small amount of sampling of raw agricultural products is permissible.
Vendors who cut produce for sale, sell unpackaged/opened baked goods, prepare food for sale on-site or sell perishable food products are required to obtain a license and undergo inspections. If your business engages in any of the described activities, you must fill out the attached packet and submit applicable fee within 30 days.
Note: In future years, a completed packet and fee must be submitted 30 business days prior to the market opening.
Mobilized vendors (any operation that moves around with the same exact setup and equipment from market to market) are not required to complete this packet, but must complete a Plan Review Packet.
