Single Event licence
If you want to operate a Temporary Food Business only occasionally, you can apply for a Single Event licence.
This allows you to operate a stall on one occasion only, for up to 4 consecutive days. Single Event licences cannot be renewed, so you need to lodge a new licence application and pay the fee each time you operate.
If you want to operate from a temporary food premises regularly, you should apply for an annual licence.
This requires only one application and fee, and you can operate a number of times in that year. You will need to list the individual markets or events that you wish to operate at.
The annual licence is renewable and renewal notices are issued 60 days before expiry.
Note: Annual licence holders also need to nominate a Food Safety Supervisor.
Market Food Stall licence
This is a different category of a Temporary Food Business Licence which permits only the cutting up fruit and vegetables at the market food stall.
All other forms of food preparation, cooking and re-heating within a Market Food Stall are not allowed; these tasks must be done in an approved kitchen.
