The bill requires the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) in the Department of Law and Public Safety to offer a seasonal permit authorizing the sale of alcoholic beverages on a designated premises serving as a farm market held on a recurring basis, such as daily, weekly, or monthly during a specified period of time in a calendar year. The fee for this permit would be no more than $500. Currently, the ABC only offers a one-day permit authorizing the sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption on a designated premises. The fee for the one-day permit is $100 for a civic, religious, educational or veterans organization and $150 for any other organization. Therefore, a person needs a distinct and separate permit for each day during which he or she participates in the farm market, even if it is held on a recurring basis (e.g., a farm market operating once a week for two months would require eight or nine permits). This bill eliminates these redundant permit applications and issuances by providing for one permit to span the season in which the farm market operates.
