The Sweetwater Jaycees Rattlesnake Round-Up is approaching fast, and this event brings many temporary food vendors. A temporary food vendor is a food establishment that operates for a period of no more than 14 consecutive days in conjunction with a single event or celebration. All temporary food vendors should have a copy of their last inspection form visible to customers. The public can help control unpermitted individuals and organizations from selling food by asking if they are permitted.
