WHAT IS A MOBILE FACILITY?**
A Mobile Food Facility (i.e. hot dog cart, espresso wagon, Fair vehicles) is a food vehicle or cart, used in conjunction with a commissary or other permanent food facility. "Mobile Food Facility" does not include an "approved vehicle" used to transport packaged food from a food facility, or other approved source to the consumer.
To apply for a permit to operate a temporary or mobile food facility, please submit an application with the appropriate fees.
**Please Note: Non Profit Vendors are exempt of fees, but are still responsible for all requirements pertaining to the facility.
