Here are more clarifications about Cottage Food Bill.  Under the new law you cannot sell at farmers markets – just directly from your home (as if you weren’t doing that already).

and a link to the rules.

1. Food must be sold from your home, directly to another consumer.  No
sales at farmer’s markets, county fairs, roadside stands, local
festivals, craft shows, wholesale, or resale to restaurants, grocery
stores, coffee shops, etc.  The food must be purchased at your home.

2. Foods are limited to non-potentially hazardous baked goods
(cookies, cakes, breads, Danish, donuts, pastries, pies, and other
items that are prepared by baking the item in an oven), canned jams,
jellies, and dry herb mixes. THESE ARE THE ONLY FOODS ALLOWED.  If you
do not see it on this list, it’s not allowed.

3. Annual gross income from sales of above food items must be $50,000 or less.
