Vendor & Sponsor Application
What permits/licensing is required for my participation?
Vendors must have and be able to present a Food Protection Certificate (FPC) issued by the State of New York Health Department or equivalent jurisdiction.
Vendors must have and be able to present a Food Service Establishment (FSE) or a mobile vending unit with a valid DOHMH. If the vendor has a Mobile Vending Unit permit, it must be operable in the borough of Manhattan.
If a local vendor DOES NOT have a valid FSE or mobile vending unit permit, then a Temporary Food Service Establishment Permit must be obtained at the Citywide Licensing Center, located at 42 Broadway NY, NY 10004. They are open Monday through Friday 9am-5pm.
If an out-of-state or international vendor does not have a valid FSE or mobile vending unit permit, the Event Organizer must be notified so that the TFSE can be obtained. The TFSE permit costs $70.00 per vendor. For vendors who sell frozen desserts, the TFSE permit costs $95.00.
