                          Cooktown’s Market Stall Information Sheet


     1. I want to sell art, crafts or second hand objects at the Lion’s Park, Cooktown. What do I need?
            You need an annual approval from the Cook Shire Council that gives you the right to have a stall at the market. Prior to this
            approval you will need to lodge an application for a market stall (see table overleaf, section 1).


     2. How do I apply for a market stall?
            Contact the Cook Shire Council and lodge an application (with the application fee) for a stall at the market. Once your
            application is accepted, you will be notified by the Cook Shire Council and required to pay the approval fee. You will then
            receive your approval for your market stall.


     3. I want to hold a market stall for one week-end only. What do I need?
            The same procedure as in Question 1, but in this case, you need to apply for a temporary approval which is valid for one week
            (see table overleaf, section 2).


     4. My Market Stall approval has expired, how do I get a new one?
            As in Question 2 but specify in your application that it is a renewal and provide your existing Market Stall approval number.


     5. I want to sell flowers or plants (in pot or cuttings). What do I need?
            You need a Market Stall approval as for goods or second hand objects (see table overleaf, section 1).


     6. I want to sell fruits or vegetables at the market. What do I need?
            There are two different cases.
                •     If you sell the fruits and vegetables as whole, you only need a Market Stall approval (see table overleaf, section 1)
                •     If you sell fruits and/or vegetables that have been processed (i.e. cut, peeled, diced, sliced, squashed…) you will
                      need a Market Stall approval with a Food Business Licence (see Questions 7, 8 and 9).


     7. I want to sell food prepared and/or cooked at the market (i.e. fresh juices, burgers, sausages…). What do I need?
            You need a Market Stall approval and a Food Business Licence for a market stall. To apply for a Food Business Licence lodge
            an application at the Cook Shire Council (see table overleaf, section 3).


     8. I want to sell snack food that I prepared at home (i.e. jams, cookies…) at my market stall. What do I need?
            You need a Market Stall approval and a Food Business Licence for the premises where you prepare and/or cook the food (see
            table overleaf, section 4).


     9. I want to sell food prepared at home but cooked at the market (i.e. spring-rolls, dim-sims…). What do I need?
            As per Question 8.


    10. I want to sell food at a market stall for one week-end only. What do I need?
            You need to apply for a temporary Food Business Licence which is valid for one week (see table overleaf, section 5), you also
            need a Market Stall approval (annual or temporary)


    11. I want to sell eggs at the market stall. Can I do it?
            You can sell eggs or egg products with your Market Stall approval, but the supplier of the eggs has to have a Safe Food
            Queensland accreditation number. If the eggs are from your farm (or house), you need to have an accreditation number from
            Safe Food Queensland (contact Safe Food Queensland for more information: 1800 300 815 or www.safefood.qld.gov.au - see
            table overleaf, section 6).
