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