Temporary Food Stalls

The City of Wagga Wagga attracts a wide range of local food stalls operators from across the region to its vibrant temporary events each year. Food businesses that sell food to the public at temporary events such as fairs, festival, markets and shows are considered retail food businesses and therefore need to meet a range of requirements and food safety control such as:

If you plan to trade at a Wagga Wagga event as a food stall vendor, you are required to be registered with Council and obtain the necessary approvals. To register a temporary food stall with Council, please complete and submit the registration form below. Submissions must be made to Council at least 14 days prior to the event or activity for consideration. Please ensure your Food Safety Supervisor Certificate (if required) is available to be uploaded.

It is essential that you comply with the relevant requirements and Temporary Event Guidelines. Click below for useful links to help you understand your legal obligations.

*Please Note: This application does not provide approval to operate on a public footpath. Should you need to carry out activities on a public footpath, a separate application form (Display of Goods) must be lodged with Wagga Wagga City Council.

Temporary Food Stall Minimum Requirements

MINIMUM STANDARDS FOR FOOD STALLS AT TEMPORARY EVENTS

In New South Wales the sale of food is regulated by the NSW Food Act 2003 and the NSW Food Regulation 2010. These laws incorporate the provisions of the FSANZ Food Standards Code. Food business operators are bound by the requirements of these standards to ensure that only safe and suitable food is sold for human consumption. The Food Safety Standards can be downloaded from http://www.foodstandards.gov.au

Failing to comply with the requirements or the selling of foods that do not comply with the requirements may render the food business liable to prosecution. Vendors of foods which cause injury or illness could be sued for damages. A Temporary Event is any occasion which is not permanent in nature where food is provided at no charge or for sale to the consumer. The primary aim of this document is to make food businesses aware of their legal requirements and to suggest ways to assure food safety at the event.

APPROVAL PROCESS

  • Prior consent of Wagga Wagga City Council is required for the overall event.
  • In some circumstances a Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) must be trained and appointed. Further information can be found at http://www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au/rp/fss-food-safety-supervisors/guide-for-businesses
  • Upon satisfactory submission an Approval by Council will be granted.
  • If you are selling butchers’ meat, fermented manufactured meats, raw poultry, dairy products, seafood or plant products, you will need to be licensed by NSW Food Authority. Contact with NSW Food Authority must be made before the event to find out the requirements on 1300 552 406.
