Environment Health | County of Riverside | Swap Meets

Swap Meets have been around since the 1800’s, and the term swap meet has been in use since at least the late 1940s. A swap meet includes a flea market or an open-air market where people offer merchandise for sale or exchange.

 

Swap Meets

If a swap meet has table top food vendors, the person or organization responsible for the swap meet is required to obtain a Swap Meet Organizer Permit.  In addition, each food vendor is required to obtain their own table top food stand permit.
