A Farmer's Market Food License is required to sell food such as raw fruits and vegetables, eggs, poultry, breads, and beverages at any of the farmers' markets in the City of Milwaukee. Your Farmer's Market Food License affords you the option of selling at any of the various markets. However, if you operate at more than one market on the same day during the same time frame, you will need a license for each additional market. Operators selling only fresh produce may operate more than one booth at the same market without needing additional licenses unless the stands are not adjacent to each other, in which case, each stand needs its own license. Effective March 1, 2011, Farmer's Market Food License Applications are processed by the License Division of the City Clerk's office.
Information on the Sale of Food at Farmers' Markets
Both the original Food Dealer License and the original Weighing and Measuring Device License must be displayed at your stand at all times that you are selling.
