Farmers’ Market Self-Regulating Checklist for Vendors

All food vendors are required to notify the Health Unit of their intent to operate a booth at a farmers market. The following Compliance Checklist for Vendors is to be used in conjunction with A Guide to Understanding the Farmers Market Vendor Health Inspection Report. Submission of this completed form will serve as notification to the Health Unit.

Note: Other agencies have regulatory oversight and specific regulations for farm products. This checklist is only a summary of items the Health Unit will be assessing.

This checklist confirms that I am following these minimum food safety requirements and serves as my required notification to the Health Unit. Please check all sections that apply to products you are selling.
