Sausage Sizzles, Market Day Stalls & Fundraising Events

If you want to sell food to the public including sausage sizzles, market day stall and fundraising events, it is necessary to abide by the guidelines for temporary food premises to ensure food is handled appropriately and correctly and that the operator of the stall complies with the relevant legislation, rules and regulations.

Consideration must also be taken into account when operating a stall, which include:

  • Proprietors should maintain a list of where foods are made and/or supplied
  • Temperature controls for high risk foods
  • Suitable display of food with requirements of Food Safety Standards
  • Hand washing facilities

Sausage sizzles are subject to legislation administered by Council. Sausage sizzles are not permitted on Council property, without a permit. Please contact the Roxby Council on 8671 0010 for more information.

Sausage sizzles on private property may also be subject to Council approval and require consultation with both the Planning and Public and Environmental Health Sections of Council.

Prior to commencing operations for a temporary food business operation, it is essential that a Food Business Notification Form is completed and returned to the Roxby Council.

A food safety information kit for charities and community groups has been designed and developed by the Department of Health and FSANZ, which details the kit contents in sections and outlines practical steps which charities and community groups require to meet the obligations and responsibilities under the current laws.

Printed copies of the kit are available from the Department of Health Food Policy and Programs Branch by emailing or contact the Roxby Council on 8671 0010 for more information.
