Fire Marshall Regulations
1. Any vendor cooking under his/her tent (even samples), MUST display (have out in the open) a working and up-to-date Fire Extinguisher. Any vendor cooking food or samples NOT displaying a Fire Extinguisher, will not be allowed to cook at the market.
2. The Fire Marshal has insisted that any cooking at the market be done OUTSIDE your tent (prevents grease buildup under the tent than can cause a fire). This trumps anything contrary you have heard from the Health Department. However, the Health Dept. does require your FOOD be stored UNDER the tent (away from bird droppings, etc).
3. Any vendor that is cooking under his/her tent, MUST display a NO SMOKING SIGN. These can be purchased at Home Depot or Amazon. Any vendor not displaying a NO SMOKING SIGN, will be asked to leave the market.
