Temporary Food Service Establishments

Permits Extended

A Temporary Food Service Establishment permit is required to sell food at temporary events, such as street fairs and flea markets. Permits that expired on or after March 13, 2020, remain valid during the COVID-19 public health emergency. A permit holder may also choose to get a new annual permit now.

A Temporary Food Service Establishment permit that expired before March 13, 2020, is no longer valid. If your permit expired before March 13, 2020, you must get a new annual permit.


If you serve food at a street fair, festival or other special event, the Health Department wants to help you operate in a safe and legal manner.
