Vendor & Sponsor Application
What permits/licensing is required for my participation?
Vendors must have and be able to present on-site a valid Food Protection Certificate (FPC) issued by the State of New York Health Department or equivalent jurisdiction.
If a local vendor DOES NOT have a valid FSE or MFV, then a Temporary Food Service Establishment Permit (TFSE) must be obtained in-person by appointment only at the NYC Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) Licensing Center, located at 42 Broadway, New York, NY 10004. They are open Monday through Friday 9am-5pm. Follow the TFSE Checklist for a list of all required documentation.
If an out-of-state or international vendor does not have a valid FSE or MFV, the Event Organizer must be notified so that the TFSE can be obtained on the vendor's behalf.
The TFSE permit costs $70.00 per vendor. For vendors who sell frozen desserts, the TFSE permit costs $95.00.
