Food Vendor Details

If you are providing food and/or beverages at a public event, such as a concert, festival or fair, a Temporary Food Facility (TFF) Vendor Authorization is required from Placer County Environmental Health. 

Applicants may submit for a single event or a multi-event vendor authorization depending on whether the operator of the food booth plans to participate in multiple community events.
