Cottage Foods & Temp. Food Service Permits
We welcome food vendors to sign up for our markets! Food trucks or related food vendors, and those selling cottage foods are responsible for making sure they are in compliance with DEC requirements for food safety and have the appropriate temporary food service permits, if applicable.
“Cottage Foods” include baked goods, jams, jellies, and similar items that do not require refrigeration or freezing to be safe to consume. Vendors that sell these types of items will need to make sure that:
- If the food is not prepared in a permitted, approved, or inspected kitchen, inform the consumer by a card, placard, sign, or label placed in a conspicuous area that states the following: "THESE PRODUCTS ARE NOT SUBJECT TO STATE INSPECTION."
- If packaged, label packaged food with either: an Alaska Business License number OR the name, physical address, and telephone number of the individual who prepared the food. This allows DEC to trace the product back to the producer if there is a problem or complaint.
- Have the recipe or formulation available in case of questions.
- Be able to provide information on ingredients and allergens, and how it was processed, prepared, and packaged.
More information on the “Cottage Foods Exemptions” and what foods would qualify can be found here: https://dec.alaska.gov/eh/fss/food/retail/cottage-food/
Food vendors selling to the public, unless they fall under a qualifying exemption, must be permitted prior to operation. Not sure if you need a temporary food service permit? More information can be found here: https://dec.alaska.gov/eh/fss/food/retail/temporary-food-service/
