Food for sale at the Fair
If you checked “No” go directly to the "Power” section below.

All food offered for onsite consumption is subject to Albany County Department of Health regulations; they are numerous! (for a complete list go to http://www.health.ny.gov/regulations/nycrr/title_10/part_14/subpart_14-2.htm#s1)

The most important requirement is that all food must be from approved sources, and prepared in facilities under permit by the Albany County Health Dept. or an appropriate regulatory agency. Food may not be prepared at home.

It is up to you to meet these conditions; by selecting "Yes” above you acknowledge your responsibility for adhering to these policies.

Upper Madison Street Fair is required to include all food for on-site consumption on our temporary food service permit. If you are NOT already permitted by Albany County, please provide your: 1) Certificate of Workers Compensation Insurance (C-105.2, U26.3, SI-12, or GSI-150.2), and 2) NYS Disability and Family Leave (DB-120.1 or DB-155). If you ARE already permitted by Albany County, they will have these forms on file already, so you do not need to provide them here.
We have a very limited number spots with power and an even more limited set of spots where generators are allowed. Please consult with us at vendors@uppermadison.org if you need power or a generator before applying.
Raffle Item
Much of the funding for the Fair and other Upper Madison Improvement activities comes from a raffle held the day of the Fair. We appreciate donations of items valued at $25 or more to be used in the raffle. We may combine your item with other items to create appealing raffle baskets. If you are willing to donate a raffle item please describe it here.
Please enter the approximate dollar amount of your raffle item as a whole number with no dollar sign or decimal point. For example, if your item is worth fifty dollars enter 50.
Notes for the Organizers
