Transient Vendor License

A person/business selling new merchandise to the public on a temporary basis of time and does not have a permanent location in Tennessee where business is conducted would qualify as a transient vendor.

A transient vendor can be a Tennessee resident or an out of state resident. Transient vendors are required to obtain a 14-day permit from our office prior to the event date in order to legally conduct business in Davidson County.

If your permit expires prior to the scheduled ending date, a new permit will need to be obtained for an additional 14 days.
