Thank you for your interest in vending opportunities. The City of Greer hosts a variety of festivals and events throughout the year in which we select food and non-profit vendors. The City of Greer is dedicated to the support of local vendors who offer local products and services.
Vendors must supply their own tent, tables, and chairs.
Priority is given to vendors serving authentic food specific to the event.
Duplicate products may be denied entry. In the case of duplicate items, the grading criteria is as follows: food authenticity, level of innovative products and menu items, City of Greer status, booth appearance, and value of products and services.
To better serve our community, the City of Greer requires all food vendors must operate in accordance with SC DHEC Regulation 61-25.
***January 1, 2020 the City of Greer began enforcing the 2018 International Codes by State Law. The 2018 edition of the International Fire Code includes a new section (319) for mobile food preparation vehicles. Two of the biggest changes are exhaust hoods and fire protection for cooking equipment. Section 319.3 states “Cooking equipment that produces grease-laden vapors shall be provided with a kitchen exhaust hood in accordance with Section 607.” Section 319.4.1 “Cooking equipment shall be protected by automatic fire extinguishing systems in accordance with Section 904.12.”
We understand this new requirement can be a strain on a small business so we are giving these vendors until July 1, 2020 to have these systems installed. We will immediately enforce all other requirements of IFC 319. You can obtain copy of this code section by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
