Food Vendor Application


  1. Be sure to read this entire page. Submission of your application represents acceptance of these terms.

  2. This application does not apply to "craft" food vendors, such as jellies/jams, honey, seasonings, spices, freeze dried candy, and other pre-packaged items.

  3. All food vendors will be placed alongside the north side of Pine Street, 

  4. No vehicles are allowed inside the event perimeter after 8AM or before 5PM the day of the event. 

  5. If your setup is self-propelled (food truck, etc), it will not be allowed to leave until 5PM. This is a safety measure. 

  6. Pricing for food vendors is $100 per 10 feet of linear frontage. For example, if you have a 26 foot long food truck, your fee would be $260. If your setup is 30 feet of linear frontage, your fee would be $300.

  7. Items sold will be limited to what is submitted on your application, unless otherwise amended in writing by event staff.

  8. Menus will be considered on an item-by-item bases. For example, if you have 5 items you would like to sell, and we do not agree to 1 of the items, we will simply ask you to remove the 1 item that is not approved. 

  9. Setups will not cross the marked threshold on Pine Street. i.e., Pine Street is a main walkway and it will not be blocked.

  10. Vendors will use existing breakers, wiring, plugs, and panels. No electrical equipment will be modified.

  11. Our primary power hookups are 50 AMP 240V NEMA 14-50. Our secondary power hookups are 20 AMP 120V NEMA 5-20R.​ It is up to each vendor to make sure their setup is able to hookup to our outlets. We do not supply any adapters (example: if you have a twist-lock type plug, you will need an adapter to plug in to our NEMA 14-50 outlet, etc). It is up to the vendor to ensure that they are not exceeding the amperage limit on each plug.

  12. Any drink items will be subject to approval by event staff. We have numerous non-profits that sell drinks, so this is a fairly restricted category.

  13. Absolutely no alcohol sales permitted.

  14. All vendors must be properly licensed and insured to operate in the State of Alabama/Baldwin County.

  15. No generators are allowed.

  16. Food vendors must submit an application for each event that they would like to attend. Approval is only on a per-event basis. Our event is always held on the last Saturday of March and October. 

  17. Event staff will have final authority on any issues that may arise with any food vendor.

  18. Fees are non-refundable.

Submission is not a guarantee of acceptance into the event. After your application is submitted, it will be reviewed and approved or rejected within 8 weeks. Not all submissions will be accepted. Once a vendor has been accepted, they will receive notification of this via email, as well as an invoice for the vendor fee. If your invoice is not paid within 21 days of issuance, your approval may be revoked.


If you are not in compliance with these rules, or you are found to be deviating from what was submitted and approved, you will not be allowed to operate at the event and will be disqualified from our future events.
