These events are wonderful opportunities for the community to get to together at a special event or for the community to buy local produce from local producers. These events must have a coordinator that we can work with to make sure food vendors are in compliance for a smooth running event. The coordinator needs to fill out the Food Vendor Permit Form, and they need to insure that all food vendors work with EHD and submit this form.
Producers that grow and produce food items on their farm (do not bring anything in from outside), are exempt from fees and permits, but are not exempt from complying with the food code.
See the temporary event guidelines for specific information regarding sanitation, protection from contamination and temperature control.
