Temporary food stall holders wishing to trade at approved events or at a recognised market within the City of Fremantle (including Kings Market, Growers Green and South Beach Sunset Market) require approval from our Environmental Health Services team. All stallholders must notify or register with the City of Fremantle by completing the temporary food stall application form. Our temporary food stall licence is valid for one year and licence holders may use their temporary food stall licence to trade at multiple ongoing markets or events (provided the organisers consent has been obtained).
For information on what you will require to operate your food stall please refer to the Food Safety standards. The minimum standards for the operation of a food stall, provides an example of what a food stall should look like. You may need to attach all relevant documentations such as proof of food safety knowledge and skills, an existing Certificate of Registration with another local council and a certificate of currency (public liability insurance) to avoid the delay in processing your application. Please allow 10 working days to process your application. Late application will not be accepted.
Temporary food stalls may operate throughout many local authorities/shires, but only need to be registered with one. A food stall must be registered with the local council where the stall is based. Then may operate in other local government areas. The City of Fremantle licences temporary food stalls that operate within the City of Fremantle & registers temporary food stalls that are based within the City of Fremantle. For more information see the Department of Health's management of temporary and mobile food businesses fact sheet.
Please note that applicants wishing to trade from a market operating from a 'fixed set up' location including fixed stalls at the the Fremantle Markets and E-shed Markets must complete a application to register a new food business. Stalls operating at a market or event in a 'pop up' style are required to complete a temporary food stall application form.
