Kentucky has a Cottage Law which allows its citizens to operate a home based bakery or food processing business with stipulations. For details about small/home food processing contact your local health departments or the state Department of Agriculture.
Kentucky does have a special legislation for home baking and processing but you must grow the main ingredient of the product and it must be a horticultural product. Review the regulations for selling at Kentucky Farmers’ Markets by reading the Kentucky Farmers’ Market Manual and Kentucky Domestic Kitchen Certification.
There are three ways to become a vendor at a local farmers market in the state of Kentucky.
