Food Concession Permit

This is a request for a food concession permit. After receipt and review of your application, our office will contact you regarding payment and any necessary documents. You will be asked to submit a copy of your vending license and a valid health certificate. You will also be asked to sign a hold harmless form. A permit WILL NOT be issued without these documents. There is an annual permit fee of $200. The permit fee can be paid for in the form of a check or money order. Cash cannot be accepted.

Permits are valid ONLY in the designated areas in Garret Mountain, Goffle Brook Park, Rifle Camp Park, Weasel Brook Park and Highlands Preserve. These areas are identified on each park map. The map legend refers to these areas with the FOOD symbol. By signing a permit, the Concessionaire is aware of the designated areas, identified by Passaic County in which, the Concessionaire can conduct business. If the Concessionaire attempts to function outside of the designated areas, the issued permit will be VOID and a refund will not be issued. Passaic County will agree to allow the Concessionaire to operate a mobile concession stand within the park areas identified and only during park hours. Concessionaires CANNOT conduct business while a park is closed.

Please note that Passaic County will not designate specific dates or times for any permit issued. Issued permits are VOID in the event Passaic County holds an event(s) in the parks listed below.
