Farmers’ Markets – Food Safety Inspections

Food safety inspections must be performed at all farmers’ markets whether or not the Ontario Food Premises Regulation exemption status applies.

In cases where the Ontario Food Premises Regulation does not apply, food safety inspections are conducted under the authority of the Health Protection and Promotion Act.

When a market is listed as “exempt”, Peterborough Public Health has received information from the market coordinator that more than 50% of the vendors are producers of farm products who are primarily selling their own farm products intended for use as food. This exemption status is based on the expected peak operating season for the market.
