Are food vendors permitted, and do they need additional permits?

To become a food vendor within the City Centre Sunday Market, several additional permits and compliance measures are required to ensure the safety and hygiene of food products. Here’s a brief overview:

  1. Non Fixed Food Business Registration: Food vendors must supply a Non Fixed Food Business Registration certificate from Coffs Harbour City Council. This registration ensures that vendors comply with food safety standards and regulations. Coffs harbour City Council endorses the ‘home jurisdiction rule’. This means that if you normally operate in a different council’s area and are visiting Coffs Harbour to trade, you do not need to also notify City of Coffs Harbour. Just make sure you supply proof of notification/registration with your home council to Gowings Coffs Central.


  1. Food Safety Supervisor Certificate: All food vendors are required to hold a valid Food Safety Supervisor Certificate. This certification demonstrates a thorough understanding of safe food handling practices and is crucial for maintaining public health standards.


  1. Public Liability Insurance: Food vendors are typically required to have Public Liability Insurance. This coverage protects against liability for third-party injuries or property damage that may occur as a result of the vendor’s operations.

All additional permits must be obtained and supplied to Gowings Coffs Central prior to attending the City Centre Sunday Market.
