Have a Food Truck and want to join the fun on Fridays?
Just follow these 3 Easy Steps…
Fill out our Vendor Screening Form/Waiting List.
It just has a few brief questions about your company to ensure we are a good fit for each other and we will get back to you as soon as we have had a chance to review your information. We also choose to limit competition as much as possible and have a cap on the number of trucks we accept each week. If you have been approved, this step isn’t for you…go to step 2 🙂 but if you want to be put on the wait list or find out if your business is allowed, please continue here and we will try to get back to you as soon as we can.
In the mean time, send us a picture or pdf of your menu and a link to your facebook page so that we can tag and promote you! Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org along with any other specials or announcements we would be able to make on your behalf. **We are currently on a waiting list for all food trucks, so if we don’t get back to you quickly please feel free to keep checking in and we will try to have you out when we can**
After review, we will contact you to confirm availability.
Then please download: this season’s Food Truck Application and Liability Release Waiver.
Please fill this out and bring it with you to your first event (please do not email it, as we need the physical signed copy ). We require this signed application/waiver for each season you participate in, but you will only need to fill it out once per year.
Join us at Food Truck Fridays!
Set Up is anytime between 3:30-4:45pm, although we ask that you arrive no later than 4:45 to ensure everything is ready by 5pm. Please read the Friday Evening section below for further information.
Booth Fees are collected at each event. You will be given an envelope and expected to return it to the information booth with the appropriate payment in cash or check, after event hours are over. For details, see the Booth Fee section below.
***Electricity and water are not available! Bring a generator and please check if any additional permits are needed with the city of Peoria for your setup.***
Spots are assigned, and when you arrive someone will be there to direct you to your spot. If you have a special request for a spot, or have a specific need or desire to face a certain direction, please let us know ahead of time so we can try to accommodate you the best we can.
You must bring at least one table and chairs for customer seating (high top tables with no chairs are ok too).
You may NOT sell alcoholic beverages during this event.
You are responsible for your own trash! We have limited use of the dumpster area there and if it gets too full, we will be charged an additional fee. We will collect general trash and dispose of it, but please haul away any trash that you accumulate in and around your setup area.
There are no specifications for your food truck, and the setup is individual preference. We just ask that you make sure it looks presentable and free of damage.
You may not dump grey OR clear water at the event site!
What to Bring
For your first event of the season, the Signed Application & Waiver is REQUIRED
Vendors are responsible for bringing the following items:
- Generator (electricity is not available)
- At least one set of Table & Chairs for customer seating is REQUIRED.
- If you do NOT bring this, you will be charged a $15 fee to contribute to the table and chair rental expenses.
- Broom and dust pan to clean up around your area. Any broken glass, spilled food, utensils, etc… are your responsibility.
- Your food truck, products, and necessary materials
- Proof of Licensing & Insurance (if applicable)
- Vendors must be in compliance with all city licensing requirements (visit www.peoriaaz.com for information).
- Insurance is not a requirement for most companies, but is strongly suggested.
- Any non-profit vendor must have a 501(c)3 certificate.
Please ensure you are in compliance with the regulations in place with the Maricopa County Health Department. If you have questions on the food regulations, please call them directly: 602-506-6872. Please note that every food item has different regulations and Momma’s Organic Market LLC is not responsible for making sure you are following the specific guidelines for your product(s).
Please make sure that you are in FULL compliance with the city of Peoria and are making sure those city taxes are paid. We are on CITY property for this event and we want to make sure they see us as a benefit to the city and the community. 🙂
Set up is any time between 3:30-4:45pm. You can arrive at any point in that window, but please arrive no later than 4:45 and be sure to give yourself ample time to have everything ready for the event to begin at 5pm.
Someone will be there to direct you to your spot. If you have a trailer and need to unload/unhitch, then do so quickly and proceed to re-park your vehicle in a designated vendor parking area. We ask that you please respect our parking rules and thereby leave the closest parking for customers! The quicker we can get the cars out of the way, the smoother it goes for everyone.
Clean up begins promptly at the end of the event. Don’t forget to clean up around your area as well. Any broken glass, spilled food, utensils, etc… are your responsibility, and we will be checking at the end of each event to make sure everyone is doing their part.
Be sure to turn in your envelope with the applicable booth fees to the information booth prior to leaving.
You will be given an envelope at each event, and expected to return it to the information booth with the applicable fee in cash or check, after the event hours are over.
The vendor fee is a straight 15% of sales for the night.
*If you would like to provide a free meal ticket or gift card for us to use as promotional material, we are happy to use contests to promote those gifts.
Momma’s Organic Market, LLC has the right to refuse a booth space to anyone. There are certain products and services that may not be appropriate for a family event and will be decided at the discretion of Momma’s Organic Market, LLC.
If vendors fail to respect our rules (by arriving on time, bringing seating, hauling away their own trash and coming to the event when they are scheduled, etc) we will take you off any further scheduled you have with us.
We appreciate our vendors and are happy to have such a variety of creative, local services and products. Please check with us via email or phone to make sure that your business is able to participate in our events. **DO NOT MAIL IN PAYMENT FOR A BOOTH OR SHOW UP TO THE EVENT IF YOU HAVE NOT CHECKED WITH US FIRST!**
Thank you! We look forward to working with you!
