Food Vendor Registration

To sell food at Blochairn Car Boot Sale or at our Partick or Shawlands Farmers Markets you must be registered with us as a food vendor. See our food vendor registration requirements below.

Registration requirements

To meet the registration requirements, you must provide us with the following documentation:

  • Photographic ID
  • Proof of address either a utility bill or bank statement (dated within 3 months)
  • Public Liability Insurance-Minimum Indemnity is £5 million
  • Food Hygiene Certificates
  • Food Hygiene Inspection or proof that your business is registered with your Local Environmental Health Officer
  • PAT/Gas safety Certificates for any equipment you wish to use on site (receipts are acceptable if equipment less than 1 year old)
  • £5 registration fee


Our Farmers Markets are based on the age-old concept that they sell locally produced goods to local people.  This means that stallholders must have grown, reared, cooked, brewed or baked the goods themselves.  We operate a trader registration scheme, and these criteria must be met in at least one way for applications to be considered.
