Important Update about License Renewal
New York City’s Emergency Executive Orders (EEO) that extended license expiration dates and renewal application deadlines because of the COVID-19 pandemic ended. If your license was set to expire from March 12, 2020 through August 14, 2021 and you did not renew due to the Mayoral EEO, your extended license will expire on August 14, 2021.

You must have a Temporary Street Fair Vendor Permit to sell goods or offer services from a booth or stand at a street fair.
A permit or license isn't required to sell items at a garage sale on private property.
You can't use a Temporary Street Fair Vendor Permit as a General Vendor License; it is only valid for selling goods and offering services at street fairs. To learn more, go to the General Vendor License page.
The fee is $10.
The permit is valid for one month and is not renewable. After it expires, you must apply for a new permit. Once your permit has expired, you are considered unlicensed and must submit a new permit application. You may get penalties for operating without a permit.
