  • Note about Food Handling

    The ISD, Health Division must assess the facilities available to the farmers market and prohibit any food handling operation that cannot safely be performed.  In addition, the Board of Health may prohibit the sale of certain food items if the items cannot be handled and maintained in accordance with all applicable health codes. If the farmers market is located on a public way, the market may require approval from the Public Works Department.
