Those wanting to operate an annual farmer’s food market establishment such as a vendor that sells pre-packaged potentially hazardous foods, such as freezer meat, cheese, and whole shell eggs, or the sampling of potentially hazardous food items. A permit is required for each such location.


Prior to the approval to operate an annual farmer’s food market establishment, the Department of Health requires the submittal of the application and appropriate fees. The applicant is required to disclose the exact location of the farmer’s market. Information with regard to hours of operation, foods to be sold, and storage of product during non-operational hours is also required. If selling whole shell eggs, a retail egg board permit is required with application. Full compliance is required before the sale of any food product.
