What Are Temporary Food Service Premises?

When a special event is held that requires the short term provision of food, the facilities may often be unable to meet the requirements of the Food Premises Regulation. Temporary food service permits are sometimes needed to set out a minimum standards to ensure safe food provision at special events where full compliance with the Food Premise Regulation is not achievable.

A temporary food service premise is a short-term (14 days or less per year) operation for the preparation and / or serving of food products. If the temporary facility operates for more than 14 days it is no longer temporary and it would need the same type of permit as those who hold a mobile facilities permit.


What are Temporary Markets? (Farmer's Markets, etc.)

A temporary market is not necessarily a permitted facility, but rather it is where various vendors, permitted temporary food service establishments, non-permitted non-hazardous food vendors, and miscellaneous crafters, etc. may gather sell their wares on a periodic basis.
