Guidelines from Interior Health are posted on our website here >>> . Please read these over very carefully.
Vendors of higher risk foods (defined in guidelines) must contact the local Interior Health Authority –phone 250.420.2220 - to submit an application and be approved prior to selling at a market. Vendors of lower risk foods (defined in guidelines), are not required to submit an application.

Q. What do I need to bring?
Everything that you will require for your display, including product, tables, display items, signage, float, a tent if you wish to use one, any necessary permits (food producers) etc. We provide a 10 x 10’ empty space for you to fill. Attractive, well laid out products at an inviting market stall are the best way to invite people to shop.
Q. Do I need a tent?
A tent is not necessary, but can be nice to have, as protection from the elements – sun, rain, etc. However, the other element is wind, and if you choose to use a tent, you MUST have some form of weights/tie-downs to secure the tent in the event of breezes, or gusts of wind.
