Temporary markets and food stalls

Food businesses intending to sell food on a temporary basis, such as an annual show, markets, or pop-up restaurants, need to complete the Temporary Food Business/Premises application form (in addition to the Food Business Notification Form).

Temporary food premises are required to have handwashing facilities, although they may not need to be permanent. If permanent handwashing facilities are not available, the requirements of the Food Safety Standards can still be met without the need for an exemption. A container with warm water with a tap or valve, supplied with a collection bucket for wastewater, along with soap and single-use paper towels must be supplied in areas where food handlers work.

Safe Work Australia has more information about temporary food premises, or contact Council’s Health Services team on 8563 8444 or via email
