Advice would be best from someone in your County.

Advice from me would be from what I have experienced with local enforcement here

I would suggest not only preparing for Health Dept inspection but also Fire Dept Inspection. Make sure you have proper fire extinguishers and heating equip that is allowed in your area. Some areas do not allow propane fired steam tables in tents, etc

I don't know about Illinois but here you need to have a 3 compartment sink to serve prepared foods. That's always the biggest thing. And some markets require you to have insurance. Check with your health department. They will usually have a detailed list of what is required for temporary events in your county.
