Vendors are responsible for securing all necessary permits and approvals. Vendors selling approved products prepared in a non-regulated, non-inspected kitchen must clearly display a sign at their stand indicating such. The sign must be clearly visible and clearly worded. A sample of acceptable wording is: "Food items were prepared in a kitchen that is not subject to regulation or inspection by the Foods Division of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture". Only certain items (mainly baked goods) are eligible for this option, please contact the Health Department for details – do not assume that your product is covered by this exemption just because you bake it.

All food items (except produce and eligible baked goods) must be prepared in a licensed kitchen. This includes, but is not limited to: salsa, jellies, sandwiches, enchiladas, etc.
